    After years of hiding the fact that the love is gone, the last child moved out of the house and Mom and Dad announced they were getting a divorce. The kids were distraught and hired a marriage counsellor as a last resort at keeping the parents together. The counsellor works for hours, tries all of his methods, but the couple still won't even talk to each other.

    Finally, the counsellor goes over to a closet, brings out a beautiful upright bass, and begins to play. After a few moments, the couple starts talking. They discover that they're not actually that far apart and decide to give their marriage another try.

    The kids are amazed and ask the counsellor how he managed to do it. He replies, "I've don’t think there’s anyone alive who can resist the temptation to talk during a bass solo."

  4. Hey, I resent people talking during a double bass solo. I don't pull over when one plays on the radio, but I forbid my wife to talk during one.

    Don't worry, she makes up for it the rest of the time.
  5. You owe me a new keyboard. I just laughed a mouthful of coffee out through my nose. Now I'm laughing AND I'm in pain.

    So true. Resist the urge!

  12. Solution: Turn up so loud that no one can hear themselves think, let alone talk.
