|What with all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost went unnoticed last week.
Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey", died peacefully at age 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.
They put his left leg in - then the trouble started.

|A couple of guitarist jokes I chuckled at.
1. What do you call a guitarist without a girlfriend?
2. How can you tell if there is a guitarist on your doorstep?
3. How do you get a guitarist off of your doorstep?
2. by the domino pizza hat.
3. pay for the pizza.

|I ran into a guy at Radio Shack, I said "do you have and spade connectors" he said "look, buddy, we're an equal opportunity employer"!!!
I ordered about 4 dozen from Mouser for half the price!!

| I sold a customer some parts as he was making a Electric guitar, a week went by and I ran into him again and he showed me the ELECTRIC guitar he made and complained that it wasn't working. I looked at the body and wondered why it had black burn like marks on it,and why he'd cut the end off the lead ,speading the the 2 wires
I still shake at the thought

|We had a customer complain that his guitar made a huge noise just before he played , we told him "to plug the lead into his guitar first, before pluging into the amp"
yep and he's still happy.
another decided buy to only one string for his guitar as he'd only broken one and the rest were ok , he came back to complain that the new string was brighter and had more tone and volume than the other's, trying to make sure that I knew just what the problem was I said" your complaint is that the new string sounds like it's better then the other older strings on your guitar " "Yes" he said ,"So you want me to stop the new string sounding like a new string " I said "Yes" he said I said "most people are happy when their strings sound new with tone and volume" and he reported me to the shop owner

|Not an amp joke, but techniaclly oriented...
A phone company guy buys a rifle and promptly goes to his local shooting range to test his abilities. The shooting range attendant hangs a target at which the phone company guy proceeds to fire six shots. The attendant then takes the unhit target down and yells to the phone guy, “ All shots fired were misses!”.
The phone company guy looks at his rifle, covers the end of the barrel with his hand and proceeds to blow off one of his fingers. At which point he yells to the attendant, “Everything works fine here, it must be at your end!”

|You know you are spending too much time at the bench, when you need a $5,000 loan but you figure $4k7 is probably "close enough".|
