    I see two elephants, I read "smash your left hand" and I'm out.

    Thank you gentlemen.

    Consequently, I was able to safely start reverse parsing the joke...

    Frankly I'm disappointed.

    Not only that it's very misleading, he completely omits the final two smashes up in this area...

    There's no bassist present, so I don't see the problem.

    Maybe if an elephant sang it I would finally understand the lyrics.

    It makes me wonder what our guitar player is teaching our drummer when I'm not around...and one of the places we rehearse, does have a piano.

    Yes, this "joke" is not only misleading but dangerous. The keyboard player should not be smashing anything with their left hand, or they should expect a punch in the face from the bassist.
  11. What's worse, is that elephants never forget, so he would always play it that way.

    Elephants have hands? I thought they had paws.

    See, the joke is, elephants have really big feet and wouldn't be able to articulate keys on a keyboard, and so--ah, forget it.

    A little auto-tune and some trickery and you have the next American Idol!

    Q: How many bassists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: None. The keyboard player can do it with his left hand.
