I have noticed a few people 'round these parts and in public have various little hangie things from their ukes.

So the question is...what's up with that?

Voodoo dolls?
Uke mojo?
Shrunken heads of deceased loved ones?

What gives? Spill.

It's the uke equivalent of fuzzy dice.

Hmm...

I missed out on the bling contest (couldn't have competed with the winning Spidey anyways...), but here's a pic to liven things up:

I noticed the same thing when I was on Maui last week and met a couple from San Diego with them on their Ukulele's so I picked up a couple myself. I know you can see one of them in the picture. I picked up a Uke doing the Hula and a Pineapple surfing...

It's like the stuff people hang from their rear view mirrors in their cars. Religious knick knacks. Cultural flotsam. Metaphorical codpieces. Unessential, decorative but distracting junk.

With cars, there's an old rule that the ability of the driver is in inverse relationship to the amount of crap hanging from the mirror. I wonder if there's a similar rule about ukuleles?

Wow. When I first read that, I thought you were saying that your girlfriend made you a bracelet from the headstock of your Kala. :eek:

OK...so it's just a bunch of frilliness. Gotcha.

Now..had it been superstition..I might have played along.

I left "Pops" on my Sunday when it came in but it just got in the way too much.

However..maybe if I had some key chain Tiki Gods I would slap dem on. Looks like I'll have to place an order with ABC stores. :rofl:
