    A C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, we
    don't serve minors." So the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an
    open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and
    the G is out flat.

    An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.
    A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse
    me. I'll just be a second."

    Then an A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this
    relative of C is not a minor.

    Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and
    exclaims, "Get out now. You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar

    The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a

    sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development."

    The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the
    diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at
    an upscale correctional facility. On appeal, however, the C is found
    innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to
    the contrary are bassless.

    The bartender decides, however, that since he's only had tenor so patrons,
    and the sopranout in the bathroom, everything has become
    altoo much treble; he needs a rest, and closes the bar.
