Maybe 'Taps' is the next song you should learn on your new fluke

Learned this in an episode of the hit TV series "E.R. UKE";

You need;

Ace bandage
Masking Tape (blue painters tape would work better if available)
Wood or White Glue
Paper towel
Water (spit or sweat works too in a pinch)
a helper if available
Scotch
Procedure;

Run a thin glue line in the crack.
Have your helper apply pressure to seal the crack.
Dampen the paper towel and wipe off the excess glue, then tape over the crack thoroughly, keeping the pressure on to keep the joint tight.
Wrap the body tightly with the ace bandage and set it in a safe place for the glue to dry.
Immediately apply the Scotch to the repair crew.
When you wake up, inspect the correction area, and if the glue has not fully cured, repeat step 5 as needed.Have fun!

Ha! That's great. Let us know if it works! If not, here's another solution:
Skip steps 1-4 and repeat step 5 over and over again for about an hour. Play ukulele. It should sound just fine!
