Which reminds me of: (maybe slightly off topic - sorry Colin)

I was asked to help out in the alto section of a local church choir one Christmas a few years ago. At the rehearsal for the "Service of 9 Lessons and Carols", we were presented with sheet music for Gaudete and started to sing it.

The conductor stopped us and asked us to stop singing like a church choir and to "sing it how it should be sung".

So I stuck my finger in my ear, the conductor collapsed in a heap of laughter and the blue rinse brigade had absolutely no idea what was happening.

I've not been invited back...................
