Came across this on a theory website:

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 5th between them.

After a few drinks the 5th is diminished and the G is out flat.

An F comes in and tries to augment the situation but is not sharp enough.

A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me, I'll just be a second."

An A comes into the bar but the bartender is not convinced this relative of C is not a minor.

Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, "Get out now! You're the seventh minor I've found in the bar tonight."

The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender who used to have a nice corporate job until his company down-sized, says, "You're looking sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development." This proves to be the case as the E-flat takes off the suit (and everything else) and stands there au natural.

Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror he is under a rest. The C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility. On appeal however, the C is found innocent of any wrong doing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bass-less.

Is "let's get on with it" a Freudian slip for "Let's get it on"?

It's bad medicine, mr_hunky ... painfully pathetic, purulently puerile. (But you could check M's prior posts if you have the stomach for it.)

Ok Sotto, I checked. I won't say good or bad stuff but at least entertaining in the least common denominator kinda way! laugh .

BTW, reading words like "concupiscent" is greek to this former dodgeball star! wink . Even after clapping it out..con-cup-i-scent..(or is it con-cup-iscent?), I still don't have a clue. confused

Oh well, In any event, it's not our battle so pass the butter!. thumb

I must be missing something too. Gyro took a swipe at Horwitzian as well in another thread for no apparent reason (that I could see). I guess I'm not paying close enough attention... smokin


Buy some good stock and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it.

Smokin...
I can't really understand why Horowitzian gets more pointless bashing than, say, LisztAddict, Lisztener or your humble servant's avatar.. he he he. Is it because Liszt is dead for more than a century while we still have the living memory of Horowitz...? Anyway, I would appreciate if we keep discussion to the point in the future.
