Bring on the Bagpipes Jokes!

By November 12, 2012

Follow me on:

One of the most enduringly popular blog posts that I've ever made involved a simple question: what's your favorite accordion joke? Now, that's an easy enough place for me to tread -- I'm a (terrible by both lack of talent and lack of practice) amateur accordion player, and my sweetie is a professional musician who has a few accordions in his instrumental arsenal. We even saw fit to give our toddler a tiny accordion, something that normal people everywhere would shudder at. That is to say, I actually demonstrably love accordions, and have overwhelming evidence to prove it.

As for bagpipes? Well, I do love them, but you're just going to have to take my word for it. I don't own a set, I've never had an envie to learn to play them... I've never even dated a bagpiper. But really, I like them. So you're going to have to just trust me here, and know that what I'm about to say is all in good fun.

Why do bagpipers walk when they play? To get away from the sound.
