A 58-year-old Punchbowl man was arrested Tuesday after he beat his roommate with an ukulele, police said.

Police said the two men were arguing inside their apartment about 7:30 a.m. when the man hit his 56-year-old roommate with the musical instrument, causing substantial injuries.

Officers arrested the older man at the Frear Street apartment for investigation of second-degree assault.

OK, I'll start.

"I say that a four string steel electric is a ukulele"
"Is not!"
"Is too!"
"Is not!"

How do you cause "substantial injuries" with a Ukulele?

Maybe he caught him in the eye with a Peghed. I knew changing to those would end in tears.

Maybe it was a solid-body tenor.

Maybe it was the singing that started it..."You don't like my singing? Izzat what you're sayin?"

Where's Punchbowl?

Once he got a few good hits in, it probably broke and got pointy in several places.

Maybe it was an argument over high g and low g. Maybe he wanted to show that a soprano could be as powerful an instrument as a tenor.

Maybe he just got tired of comparing Aguilas and Worths.

If you strum "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" once more I'm going to send you there.

Drop Baby Drop.

Play that damn kiddy guitar while I'm trying to sleep.........

I imagine it's not hard at all - they didn't say the ukulele survived, after all. Trust me, if I whallop you in the temple with even my most fragile uke the uke may be destroyed but you're not going to be in a position to crow about it. :)

Substantial injuries to the roommate or the ukulele?

Considering the price difference, would it really sound that much better when beating someone with a solid wood uke as opposed to a laminate?

The type of strings can make a big difference.

Punchbowl is in Oahu.

And they say ukulele players are all peace lovers. Guess there are a few in sheep's clothing amongst us.

The fact that you can quote Neil Innes wins you my "favourite UU member of the week" medal.

Aloha,
Punchbowl is the Local name for the Cemetary of the Pacific. Lots of Servicemen buried there including my Brother and many friends from the Vietnam War era.
It is located roughly halfway between the Honolulu airport and Waikiki........................

I've heard a few people attempt to play it (badly) and it has really hurt my ears a number of times.

I heard a story about a man who killed his wife with a two banjos in Kentucky. The first one broke, so he got his other one and finished the job! True story.

I just had to do a little google-ing. Found another grisly example of murder by banjo, but guitars seem to be the prefered instrument when it comes to this sort of thing.

Must've been lead guitarists...speaking of which...

Q: How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Four; one to change the bulb and three to stop the lead guitarist from hogging all the light.
