What do you get when you cross a Jehovah's Witness and a Hell's Angel?

Someone who knocks on your door and then tells YOU to f%#@ off!!

I'm always polite to religious door-knocking folk. But I always wonder what would happen if I knocked on their door and asked if I could possibly persuade them that my musical preference is the ONLY musical preference worth having and that THEIR musical preference would not lead to their musical salvation.

Then I could leave them some cds - maybe some Charles Mingus and Tanahill Weavers. Maybe even leave some sheet music after pointing out the beauty of major seventh chords and why a tierce de picardy should be used sparingly.

How many people would tolerate my musical evangelism?

A story to finish. Two salesmen came to our work selling credit cards of some kind. They were so nervous that they kept apologising and stuttering. I felt very sorry for them and explained that if they wanted to sell their product they would have to smarten up their act. I asked them to go outside and enter again - this time with feeling! They did so and were much better the second time. I wasn't interested in buying of course, so they left empty-handed!
