My last article mentioned the possible bankruptcy proceedings of the Gibson Guitar Company. That’s a depressing thought, no matter what the cause is. The month since then has been rough on me as well, maybe I should declare emotional bankruptcy, so I’ve decided to share some musician jokes with all of you just to lighten the mood. If you get insulted, rethink your role as a musician/entertainer! I also apologize if some of the jokes are so musician oriented that they evade understanding to most successful folks. Like this first one…
A sunburst Stratocaster walks into a bar, orders a beer and takes a stool next to a hot-looking Les Paul Goldtop, who’s sipping an umbrella drink. The Strat leers at the Les Paul for several minutes and then says, “Hey, that’s some set of humbuckers you got on you, darlin’.”
“What kind of cheap pickup line is that?” the Goldtop says indignantly.
A young child says to his mother, “Mom, when I grow up I’d like to be a musician.”
She replies, “Well honey, you know you can’t do both.”
