C, E-flat, and G walk into
a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve
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 walks over 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."
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. "
