A hundred dollar toothbrush might be to big of a leap. Thats a lot of chew. Baby steps.
"Cleans all of your teeth in 30 seconds."
Does that mean the average Banjo player could be done in 1.875 seconds?
Bill James, that's the joke I was gonna make!
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946

So one banjo = two toothbrushes, apparently.

Well, if it was next to a guitar, it'd be called a teeth brush.

I'll give the wizards at Hammacher Schlemmer this much - the package includes an instructional DVD from Pete Wernick. Good choice. It also includes a pitch pipe, which I hope is clearly labelled so a customer doesn't think it's a harmonica.
BTW, I wonder how often the sets of airplane passengers and potential banjo customers intersect ...
Buy both and use the one on the right as an automatic tremolo machine
Pete Wernick – Prominent banjo player with the Hot Rize bluegrass band and instructor, he was on his way to a festival in the Albany, New York area. Wernick walked away from the crash with his young son, and along with his wife, they took a later flight to go to the festival. He gave his personal account of the day's events in the song "A Day in '89 (You Never Know)". Wernick has yet to release a recording of the song, but has published the lyrics on his website.

Gee whiz! I thought this was supposed to be one of those light-hearted fun threads. Kind of taking an unscheduled change in the flight plan. I never heard about this before, and I must say, I am glad Pete survived. I am sorry so many people died, but it would have been just that much worse had he not. The lyrics are a compelling rendering of his thoughts about what must have been a harrowing experience. I can understand him not recording it - he must be reluctant to revisit that experience, repeatedly - and I assume he wanted to write it down to get it out of his system.
It was United, too. Breaking guitars is one thing, this was quite another. I am glad I don't fly often.

Maybe urban legend, but I recall hearing a bit more to that story; An elderly couple supposedly asked Pete or Joan if they could trade a seat so as to sit together; neither one survived. Fate ?
The best pickup to put on a banjo is a F150.
