    Strange coincidence! They had coconuts at the farmers market today, and I actually did think right then, I wonder if you could make a uke out of a coconut. But they were just a dollar! You totally...

    When I got a uke from MGM, it came with a humidifier and instructions about maintaining proper humidity. Maybe yours will come with this as well, which will make it easy enough to keep things humid. ...

    Maybe if you named your ukulele, then you wouldn't have to worry about calling it a uke or an uke. You could just call him by his proper name!
