    This appears to be an image of a guitarist with a mandolin Photoshopped
    into his hands. Saved the cost of photographing a real person playing the
    instrument I guess... Trying to sell to people who are 100% ignorant
    about the instrument? Playing an Ebm#4 chord!

    No, that's my buddy, "Tiny." He has a hard time barring.
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    That picture was up here a few weeks ago as well. I just can't find it.

    That is the biggest mandolin I have ever seen! Hilarious.
