A co-worker of mine came in this morning bummed out because she had failed her "flute course" at college. I didn't want to come off as if I were taking her failure lightly, but a riddle popped into my head almost instantly as she was telling me the bad news. I think it's original, but you tell me if you've heard it before:

Q. What happens to a person who fails a ukulele course?
A. He has to go to Strummer School!

Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!

I doubt you'll have many opportunities to present that riddle, but if you ever do, please let me know how it goes over.

(Thanks, folks. I'm here Tuesdays through December. Remember to tip your servers generously.)

Tom, the crickets you're hearing right now are not because your riddle was bad; they're because everyone is speechless with jealousy that they didn't think of it first!

I think that's what you would call a groaner. :)

Maybe some of you didn't get it. "STRUMMer School," instead of "SUMMER School?" Is this thing on? Hello??? Groan.

Good one. OK, I'm glad this dopey little thread is, at least, inspiring some good humor this holiday season

Perhaps the problem is that so many ukulele players strive so hard to be taken seriously, they're that much less inclined to joke around. ;)

... not to mention they're a little high strung...

What is the range of a banjo uke?

About 20 yards if you have a good arm.
