    Q: Why is a bassoon better than an oboe?
    A: The bassoon burns longer.

    Q: What is a burning oboe good for?
    A: Setting a bassoon on fire.

    I am aghast at these double reed jokes! Even though I've heard them. Well played

    Not wind, but brass.....

    This is from 1948 and pokes some fun at Emil Sholle, a former longtime member of the Cleveland Orchestra’s percussion section. Following a dynamic cymbal crash during the finale of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, as Mr. Sholle tamped the cymbals to his chest, the vibration agitated the matches in his shirt pocket – causing them to ignite!

    Ooh, the set-up on that clip was well worth the payoff! Clip omits the quote.

    Goodness, gracious, great balls of fire.

    flame throwing guitar



    This was a bit unusual. These are instruments made out of paper, then set on fire as one plays them. I liked it!

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    ὃν οἱ θεοὶ φιλοῦσιν ἀποθνῄσκει νέος [Those whom the gods love die young] - Menander
