GUEST,Tom Your UNfavorite instrument & why (101* d) RE: Your UNfavorite instrument & why 21 Nov 07


The Irish suppository-flute, better known as the flageolet or tin-whistle takes some beating in terms of irritation. Like any instrument, results of great beauty can be achieved by a skilled and discerning player but such are too few and far between to justify even the existence of an instrument which mostly produces no more than a pointless and offensive twittering. The only logical course of action, in my opinion, is to impose a cripplingly large tax on the sale and purchase of them, thus discouraging all but the most serious of musicians from ownership. Luckily, they usually bend without undue force, and/or can be fitted into most bodily orifices, often without the use of a hammer, though beef or pork dripping can be an enormous help.
