musical joke

Sent to me on Facebook

C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them.
After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished, and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom, saying, "Excuse me; I'll just be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."
E-flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, "You're looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development." Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural.
Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

Not on par with yours, Stu, but it's the only one I know.

Q: Ya know what keys the music is played in for tightrope walkers?
A: C# or Bb.

What chord do you hear when you drop a piano down a mine-shaft?
Ab minor.

Seamus, do you have the lyrics to McNaughtan's Romeo and Juliet (same treatment as Macbeth and Hamlet)? Fellow looking for them on a thread.

Excellent, Stu.      The first part is well known, but the whole thing is quite a theoretical story.   Looks worth memorizing.

And if the coal worker who falls down the shaft ends up a lot smaller than when he started, the key is (drum roll!):
A flat minor diminished

Sorry Bruce, I don't. I'll see if I can track 'em down.
