I remember from a long time ago hearing the saying that "A gentleman is someone who knows how to play the bagpipes … but doesn't."
Then, when I was reading this month's issue of the Reader's Digest, I spotted another bagpipe joke as follows:
Q. How is playing a bagpipe like throwing a javelin blindfolded?
A. You don't have to be very good to get people's attention.
This brought a smile to my face, so I started looking around and found the following gems:
Q. What do you call someone who hangs around with musicians?
A. A bagpiper.
Q. What's the difference between a dead bagpiper in the road and a dead country singer in the road?
A. The country singer may have been on the way to a recording session.
Q. How can you tell if a bagpipe is out of tune?
A. Someone is blowing into it.
Q. What do you call bagpiper with half a brain?
Q. What's the difference between a bagpipe and an onion?
A. No one cries when you chop up a bagpipe.
The last one made me laugh out loud (grin). So, can you beat these?
