    Jokes seem to have this tightrope quality of producing tears either way. Ironically, that's considered a sign of success, as opposed to deadpan.

    Ah! The Philosopher speaks, and he speaks The Truth, writ large.

    I shall tell you. friends, why it is I said that, not just generally (albeit true), but specifically. For a long, long time my mother was not supportive of my "career choice," my devotion to music-making. She would have much preferred I choose something more responsible, more respectable, more rewarding, more stable, more impressive - doctor, lawyer, you know. I had a series of day jobs, some which I maintained for years and were actually at least somewhat respectable, but my devotion was to music. It was me, I was it, that was it. Then one day as we were talking, out of the blue she said, "You know, playing music as you do, it must make people happy. That's good." You could have knocked me over with a feather (well, a large feather). She'd found a way to acceptance. I think she only ever made it to one gig, but this was the moment I'd unknowingly longed for for so long. So this joke resonates with me on a personal level - in addition to being funny on its own.

    That's my favorite so far.

    The joke about beginner bass players is happening to me in real life. I've always played mandolin and mandola, for my own amusement only. In August I bought a mandocello, and I've been playing tunes on it and getting used to the stretch and the fingering, also for my own amusement.

    Today I went to a practice of the local mandolin orchestra. They have no mandocello or bass parts, so I made up bass notes as we went along. At least 1/3 of my notes were wrong.

    They asked me to play with them at their performances next week.

    Do you know why banjo players get laid so often?

    Their spouses will do anything to get them to stop playing…………………Anything!
