    that was the response I got the other day when i met a musician and asked him what instrument he played. i like the response and think i'm gonna use it from now on.

    stranger: oh, you're a musician. what instrument do you play?
    joe nerve: i play the music man bass.

    hmmm.... needs work.

    perhaps i'll start when i can say, "i play the bongo bass!"

    yes. much better.
  2. I use to know how to say, 'I play the cheese sandwich' in German. That one probably would wrok great if you think that the person you just met doesn't speak German.
