Tis one may be starting to seize up. It's becoming a bit forced.

Ouch, I suspect some scissor sisters will be getting pins and needles over those cutting remarks, there is no need to be so shear.

Should really have canvassed how they felt, remember Jones' Husky is not a very good Singer.

You now need to cushion the blow with some wadding and applique a little soft terry.

Having gone to a lot of treadle to bob-in on this thread, I gather it is becoming a bit petti, so I shall shuttle off again.

Here's one for musicians:

C, E-flat and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don't serve minors."

So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks,
the fifth is diminished and G is out flat.

F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in
and heads for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a second."

Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.
Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're
the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."

E-Flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes.
The bartender says, "you're looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a
major development."

Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural.
Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest.

C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor,
and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

Lets make a concerted effort and quit fiddling around.
I will become very disenchantered with the discord on that score.

E that struck a chord, very G D. And to Capo it off, expressed Con grazia.

Just remember too, that Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (especially at Christmas), so you won't need to fret about anything.

Is this a competition to be the fastest pun in the west?

Americans think musical puns are Swell, I would Echo that and say they were Great, but I'd better Stop now as I don't want to Die a Paison.

I'd always heard it as "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" (which he would then get all over his FACE). Vive la difference!

Yes, mine was a triple musical reference, not only EGBDF, but also a 1970's stage musical and an album by the Moody Blues.

If you have ever had Scottish Tablet, it puts fudge to shame, but a no, no for diabetics.... :lol:

Up here in the wild and woolly north, we call tablet "Toffee".
Still holds for diabetics though, sugar and all the ingredients which are not beneficial but awfully tasty.
It keeps our dentists in regular work, Kirbstone will be pleased to hear.
So no need to be down in the mouth.

OK UA -- you started it, so I shared with a composer friend of mine; and his daughter remarked she had never seen puns on that scale before; and my buddy wondered if I had found an old run of puns about Composers saying he could Handel that. Sadly I had but a couple minutes and could not locate the run on composers, but ambled on about a few from an artistic perspective -- pretty rough, but I'm sure you guys can chord the strokes to play a better melody.

Merry Christmas to you.

Thank you Ken for getting Bach to me with your e-Mahler. Indeed it sounds like you could Handel Mozart --perhaps starting First day with some Bacon and Gorky before you Dali off to Church; but you probably should abstain from taking Whistler or someone may call Constable and toss him in the Hopper. OK, I guess this is a bit Hockney so I'd better Goya out, at least if I've got some Monet to make my Van Gogh on de la Tour.

I can't Rembrandt where the one on composers is, that Offenbach seems to be a problem for me these days -- I've got to have a Liszt of everything. Well, I better stop Debussy'ing you with this Borodin stuff lest you Wagner the Byrd at me.

If you find any Moreau may I Banksy on you to Marc a copy for me?
