Neighbors

My neighbor knocked on my door at 2:30 a.m. this morning. Can you believe that - 2:30 a.m.! Luckily for him I was still up playing my bagpipes.

Oh boy! Bagpipe jokes!

Bagpipes-(noun)-I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made object never equaled the purity of sound achieved by the pig.

ANCIENT PIPING JOKE: The lads are marching into battle, with the piper playing away like mad.............The enemy's arrows, swords and spears are creating bloody slaughter all through the Irish ranks................Ten men down, and the piper plays on................Twenty men down, and still the pipes ring out.

Finally fifty men have fallen, and the chieftain says to the piper, "For heaven's sake, can you not play something they like?"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Man walks into a session with an octopus and declares that his critter can play any instrument in the room and $50 backs up his outrageous claim.
So the fiddler hands over the fiddle, the octopus picks it up and plays beautifully, $50 to the octopus. Same for the drums, the guitar and banjo....

Then the piper declares he is sure to meet the bet and come out on top. So he hands over his pipes and the octopus turns them first one way then the other, and not a sound comes out of it. The owner looks little nervous and asks the octopus what’s wrong.

"Play it? I'm still trying to get her out of these pajamas!!!!!!!!!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At a solemn memorial service for a pipe band drummer, the piper approached the casket preparing to play. Just as he blew up his bag and prepared to strike in, the funeral director rushed up to the casket, hands in air, crying, "Stop, stop!"

The funeral director then gently closed the casket and, turning to the astonished piper, said, "Now you can play. The drummer gave specific instructions that the casket lid had to be closed before you started."

Wow I think I may have created a monster. LOL those were good.

I used to go to North Idaho College for summer classes and they always had bagpipe classes at the same time. There is more truth in some of those jokes than you might know.

I used to work quite a few Renaissance Festivals portraying a brash Irish noblewoman "who was a wee bit down on her luck" (I've cut back to a couple two weekend gigs a year). When someone would be playing pipes, I would tell the paying customers that I told himself that "the pore craythur wouldst not scrame so loud if himself wouldst not squaze it so bloody hard!" (translation: the poor creature would not scream so loud if he would not squeeze it so expletive deleted hard)
