Guy goes into a junk shop and buys a stuffed rat. On the way home he decides it’s actually a bit foul, so he chucks it in the river. To his amazement, suddenly the streets are teeming with rats - all flooding down the hill only to hurl themselves into the water. As the drowning mass floats slowly out of sight a thought strikes him. He runs back to the junk shop.
"Hey! Have you got any banjos?"

The first violinist of the local symphony orchestra came home one night to find his house all ablaze. Fire engines with their lights flashing were everywhere and the firefighters were spraying water on the flames. The police chief aproached the violinist and said, "I’m sorry to have to tell you this, sir, but while you were away, the conductor of the orchestra came to your house and set fire to it." The violinist’s jaw dropped in disbelief. Finally he responded, "You’re kidding! The conductor came to MY house?"

Re: A few musician jokes…

Great jokes, the recurring theme about Bodhran "players" must be a world wide theme……made me laugh.

Re: A few musician jokes…

A guitar player and a bodhran palyer were having lunch together, and the guitarist got out a thermos flask. The bodhran player said; "wow, what’s that?" So the guitarist explained; “It’s a thermos flask, and it’ll keep anything hot and anything cold.” So the bodhran player said “Wow, I’ll have to get one of them” Next day they were having lunch together and the bodhran player produced a shiny new thermos flask. The guitarist said “So you got one then, What’ve you got in it?” and the bodhran palyer said “2 cups of tea and an ice cream.”

Re: A few musician jokes…

Snowyowl: So you have never had an ice tea float?

No mandolin or bouzouki jokes? Sir Mando hisself is standing atop the battlement of his royal castle in shining armor. He poetically bends over. He presents you with a wiggly bare butt.

This is why I always recommend Bodhran players take up some form of Mandoliny thang to counterbalance having the bodhran constantly being targetted. (^: (^:

Re: A few musician jokes…

A fiddle player called Pat died and went up to heaven. He was delighted to get there, as lots of his favourite musicians he’d always wanted to play music with (Michael Coleman …. etc) had got there before him. So off he went, sessions all day and night and the Guinness was flowing ….

One night late Pat was walking home after the session with St Peter (a mean harp player himself, as you’d expect), when he heard a lone fiddler playing. The sound seemed to be coming from a darkened room, and peering inside he saw a lonely figure in the shadows in the far corner, who obviously by his body language wanted to be left alone. The fiddle playing was unmistakeable - this could only be Fankie Gavin.

Pat turned to St Peter and said ‘I didn’t know that Frankie Gavin was dead! When did he get here?’

St Peter shrugged and said ‘No he’s not dead. That’s not Frankie Gavin’

Pat was incredulous. The playing was unmistakeable. ‘You’re pulling my leg’ He said. ‘I’d know that playing anywhere. And apart from that who else would want to play all alone up here? That’s Frankie Gavin all right’

‘No it’s not’ replied Pete.

‘All right then, who is it?’ asked Pat, unconvinced.

‘It’s God’ replied St Peter. ‘He just thinks he’s Frankie Gavin’

Re: A few musician jokes…

So a tax accountant, a criminal lawyer, and a trad musician all got into a terrible accident and ended up at the pearly gates together. St. Peter said to them, "Welcome! There’s a little game I like to play with all our new arrivals - before I look you up, tell me how much money you made before you passed over and I’ll see if I can guess what you did for a living!"

So one guys starts it off - "I made $39,000 a year". St Peter looks him over a minute and says "I’ve got it: you were a corporate tax accountant!"

Well, they’re all very impressed by this and the next guy decides to give it a go. "I made $335000 a year plus bonuses last year." St-Peter scratches his chin and thinks for a minute, then says "Criminal lawyer to the rich and famous."

They give him a little round of applause, and then the last guy pipes up "I made $1200 a year!"

St. Peter "Really! What instrument did you play?"

The maestro takes the orchestra to the swimming pool and tells them all to jump in the deep end. Horrified the violinist confides to the viola player that he can’t swim. Oh that’s okay, replies the violist, just fake it.
