February 16, 2012 - Toot your own horn

Dunno what this is other than the obvious.

Caption says "Nan Weidong – właściciel jedynej na świecie fletni z marchewek i szalotek, twórca wielu innych podatnych na gnicie instrumentów, wirtuoz gry na kamieniach, butelkach i rurach…"
which came through google translator as:
"Nan Weidong - the owner of the world's only flute with the carrots and shallots, creator of many other instruments are susceptible to rot, a virtuoso on the stones, bottles and pipes ..."

From here

That site has some amazing photos. Check out the carved pencils further down ...

Stop playing your food! There are starving musicians in China, ya know!



Sundae  Thursday Feb 16 09:07 AM

Toot your fruit!



classicman  Thursday Feb 16 10:38 AM

lol - I thought of that too Sundae, but its not fruit. (sigh)



infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 10:39 AM

Toot your root!

A tutor who tooted a root
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot
Said the two to the tutor
"Is it harder to toot
Or to tutor two tooters to toot?"

The carrot can be considered fruit in European Law due to the official definition of marmalade.

Because carrot marmalade (usually a slightly bitter orange jam - traditional breakfast toast topping here) is a Portuguese delicacy, the carrot needed to pass as a fruit to make the laws make sense.

Yeah. Like carrot as a fruit makes sense.

Like I told my mother when I was a kid, if I eat it, they'll still be starving.

I got hit for that.

That should be preserved somewhere.

Outstanding.

That's a new one on me.
I came out with the other classic response "Send it to them then!"
I think I got hit for that too.

"Is it harder to neuter
Or live your whole life as a fruit?

With apols to Infi, who I shamelessly stole from.
But I am a pedant and needed a proper limerick form before I could sleep.


infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 02:52 PM

I didn't write that tongue twister...it's as old as time.

Except for changing 'flute' to 'root.'

So I don't know what you mean by proper limerick form.

Yeah, not like pizza as a vegetable. Now THAT makes sense.


infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 02:58 PM

I made a cake out of pizza and bread and carrots and onions, and some leeks.

Sorry chick, I thought you'd made it up on the spot. My changes were to make it conform to a style it was never intended to be.

Works good though, huh?


infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 03:04 PM

Me likey.

Nah, I mean I'm clever and all, but that's an oldie.



Sundae  Thursday Feb 16 03:16 PM

Don't be so modest.
You're an oldie too.


(sometimes I'm so funny I could just shit myself)



infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 03:18 PM

AND I'm mean and clever too also as well.



Sundae  Thursday Feb 16 03:19 PM

Amended that after you posted.
But it still applies.
Can you see into the future?



infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 16 03:22 PM

I can barely see into the present.



Sundae  Thursday Feb 16 03:24 PM

It's eggs.



SPUCK  Friday Feb 17 06:22 AM

I can see into the fruit.

At least when you get your present you'll appreciate it

It was a limerick. the "Or" just should have been on the end of the previous line.


Sundae  Saturday Feb 18 06:14 AM

IMHO, limericks need to rhyme. Even shifting the Or still leaves a repetition.



limey  Thursday Mar 1 12:31 PM

There's nothing new under the sun!
