And Percussionman, nothing wrong with you not getting the comics. I showed some other people and they were confused. I guess it's just a certain kind of humor. But if you didn't start at the beginning of the storyline, doing that might clear some things up.
My uncle's a jazz bassist. He's really good. And I'm not just saying this because I'm biased.
Really bad bass joke that came from him:
'I was in an elevator with my bass in its case, and I wasn't lugging around my amp or music stand. After a bit, a guy and his date come onto the elevator. I was just minding my own business when I hear the guy whisper to his girlfriend:
"Ever seen a guy with a date so ugly he keeps her in a bag?"'
