What's the definition of perfect pitch? April 7, 2009 Posted by Mookie
If I had to draw Chief Thuen Gor scowling one more time I think I may have shot myself. I've been eager to get to this strip because I finally get to make one of the most tragic figures in the story so far crack a smile at a bad joke.

My favorite real world version of Donovan's joke has to be "How many trumpet players does it take to screw in a light bulb?" For any of you who have ever played music, you know this to be true. I find it particularly endearing because I played the trumpet for about nine years. Go figure.

Here's another one I enjoy.

What's a trumpet player's most effective form of birth control?
His personality.

But just so the trumpet players don't think I'm picking on them, here are a couple of other musician jokes I have come to love over the years.

What did the drummer get on his IQ test?

How do you get two flute players to play in tune?
Shoot one.

How do you get a guitarist to stop playing?
Give him sheet music.

What do you call a musician who breaks up with his girlfriend?

How do you get a musician off your front porch?
Pay for the pizza.

A boy says to his father, "Dad, I want to grow up and be a musician!" The father replies, "I'm sorry, son, but you can't have it both ways."
