Thread Name: Tune A Penny Whistle?
Subject: RE: Help: Tune A Penny Whistle?
Slight thread creep.

Some years ago I walked into the Folk Store in Seattle and said, "I'd like to buy a penny whistle." The guy behind the counter said, "All we have right now are the nickel ones." The conversation that followed for the next couple of minutes was pure Twilight Zone until it sank into my feeble mind that what he was trying to convey was that all he had were the nickel plated ones!
