    Sorry if I was being insensitive (in Post 23, to the vegans perhaps), as we don't have much banjo crime up here in Canada.

    Actually, I do get your point, JE. Some of the humour is getting close to expressing political opinions.

    I want to say that I’m sorry as well for being insensitive in post 9 to people.
    And I agree that it’s probably not harmonious to imply anything about Politics or Religion on MandolinCafe.
    So, sincerely, I hope I didn’t offend anyone either.


    (That’s why I didn’t want to mention that the guy was said to be wearing a tee shirt with the 10 commandments on it -which possibly shows that he probably isn’t clinically insane, ie. he probably has some good moral values)

    But whatever, looking at the photo, and just from a musician’s perspective, I like what the banjo used to look like.

    Did I miss something? It looks like a bull and a bear to me.

    Yep... we live in a country where owning an AK-47 is more acceptable than owning a banjo.

    And we pay the consequences.

    There's no question that they're a bull and bear, the symbols of the stock market. I was reacting to the comments beneath the pictures, in which the people posting, perhaps with tongue in cheek, referred to the animals as a "cow" and a "pig."
