For the Musos and anybody else that knows some music theory.

One night at a Bar called Tempos:
A lonely note walks into a bar, feeling a bit crochety...
The barman says to the note... 'Hey you're the 'eighth note' I've seen today'
A rest walks into a bar and does nothing for a few moments.

A group of sixty-fourth notes run into a bar.. very quickly.
After a few drinks they started to 'slur'.

In the Bar one note says to another note......... 'Hey I've got a feeling in my crotchet that's pretty noteworthy'
The note replied... 'You better re-phrase that brutha... I'm not that kinda note'
The note says... 'sorry I thought you where a sixty-fouth note and where keen for a quickie'

Three notes walk into a bar...
a C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve minors."
So the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them.
After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and the G is out flat....it seems they are now behaving like minors.
An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.
A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me I'll just be a second."
Then an A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.
Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, "Get out now. You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."
The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes.
The bartender (who used to have a nice corporate job until his company downsized) says,
"You're looking sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development."
This proves to be the case, as the E-flat takes off the suit, and everything else, and stands there au natural.

Eventually, the C sobers up, and realizes in horror that he's under a rest.
The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.
On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless.
The bartender decides, however, that since he's only had tenor so patrons, and the sopranout in the bathroom, everything has become altoo much treble and he needs a rest,
...................... so he closes the bar.


Last thought:
Just remember before you go to sleep tonight.......
Everyday two good notes go to 'La La' land...while 666 bad notes go to hell


Adios
