Here are a couple:

Big fun in a small package
It's not the size of the instrument, it's how you strum it

4 strings
4 fingers
4 fun! : )

Happy New Year, Stan!

PS I just made that motto up. I really don't have an official Motto. It does sound catchy though.:cool:

In the form of a Haiku...

Play uke whilst whilst frowning?
Like sneezing with eyes open
It's impossible

And the world will be a better place.

I've always used yours, Uncle, but didn't add the "4 fun" part. When people say "why ukulele?" I always just say, "4 strings...4 fingers."

lol! :agree:

now this begs the question- is it the ukulele that makes people crackers? Or are people who are all ready crackers naturaly drawn to it??

I kind of like Krusty The Clown's line from "The Simpsons" (which I totally stole from someone's signature here on UU, but can't remember who... so my apologies!):
"Ukulele: The Thinking Man's Violin".

Also, I couldn't help thinking about the Marx Brothers gag: "What's a motto?" "I dunno... what's a motto with you?"

Ukulele; the most fun you can have with your clothes on.:)

"......or OFF!"

Clothes can be so limiting! :)


My thoughts:

"Don't fret the little things,.....uke excepted!"

"Fun with a ukulele, .....size really doesn't matter"

:D

These are other people's that I just think of a lot; "Ukulele daily" which I use as a reminder that I can't ever get better if I just look at them (not to be confused with JoeyBug's Daily ukulele challenge), and of course I love UU's "Say Aloha to my little friend", and I am wearing that shirt right now.

Hmmm, I guess I could invent something if I try hard enough...

"A uke in the hand is worth two in the store..."
or
"A uke in the hand means you need more..."
or
"You can take my uke when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers."
or
"You kids get off my lawn!" (Because only playing my uke sooths the urge to actually go scream this...)
