    ....JT, putting the ass back in bass.

    I'm sorry,please don't hit me again.:)
    Oh,yeah..humor...eh.....let's see........how about this:
    I had eighteen bottles of whiskey in my cellar and was told by my wife to
    empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink, or else... I
    said I would and proceeded with the unpleasant task.
    I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down
    the sink with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I then withdrew
    the cork from the second bottle and did likewise with it, with the
    exception of one glass, which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the
    third bottle and poured the whiskey down the sink which I drank. I pulled
    the cork from the fourth bottle down the sink and poured the bottle down
    the glass, which I drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next
    and drank one sink out of it, and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled
    the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork down the bottle. Then I
    corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.
    When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand,
    counted the glasses, corks, bottles, and sinks with the other, which were
    twenty-nine, and as the houses came by I counted them again, and finally I
    had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank.
    I'm not under tha affluence of incohol as some tinkle peep I am. I'm not
    half as thunk as you might drink. I fool so feelish I don't know who is
    me, and the drunker I stand here, the longer I get.

    The man wants to know how much it is.
    "20,000 Dollars" answers the clerk.
    "Hm...",says the man, "are there any other special brains in here?"
    The clerk turns around and looks at the shelf for five minutes, then he take another jar. He declares," So here we have a philosopher´s brain"
    "And how much is this one ?"
    "40,000 Dollars". The man thinks about it and finally says that the two brains standing before him are too normal - he wants a very, very, very special brain.
    So the clerk goes to look for the demanded one and after half an hour, he comes back, with a jar, very dirty, but you can still see a very small-sized brain in it. "This one is a Drummer´s brain", says the clerk, "but it´s 150,000 Dollars".

    Sure enough, that Friday the producer dissapeared, so the band decided to take off.
    The Singer went to a movie, the Bassist went to a nudie bar, the Guitarists went to a medievall joust and the Drummer decided just to go home. When the Drummer got home, he found his wife in bed with the producer. The Drummer was mortified and shocked and walked around town moping.
    The next Friday, the same thing happened with the producer leaving early. "Well Mate," said the Singer, "shall we take off early again?" "You guys go ahead," said the Drummer, "I almost got caught last week."

    A very worried bass player is strolling along a beach in California. He steps on something hard, and picks it up. It's a lamp. He rubs it, and a genie pops out.
    "I am the genie of the lamp and I grant you one wish".
    "I think", the bass player says, "that I'd like to go to Hawaii one day. But I get airsick and seasick. I'd like you to build a bridge so I could drive over."
    The genie thinks this over, and gently explains that it would be almost impossible, with labour costs what they are and the sea as deep as it is.
    "In that case, how about this. Our drummer never writes any songs. I'd like you to make him write a song."
    The genie ponders for a bit, then asks, "This bridge....you want it two-lane or four-lane?"

    80,000 drummers meet in London for a "Drummers Are Not Stupid Convention".

    One drummer steps up, the compere says to him "What is 15 plus 15?" After 15 or 20 seconds he says "Eighteen."
    Obviously everyone is a little disappointed. Then 80,000 drummers start cheering "Give him another chance, give him another chance."
    The compere says "Well since we've gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you here and the world wide press is present, I guess we can give Nicko another chance." So he says "What is 5 plus 5?".
    After nearly 30 seconds Nicko eventually says "Ninety?"
    The compere sighs - everyone is crestfallen and the drummer starts crying and 80,000 other drummers start yelling "Give him another chance, give him another chance".
    The compere, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than good, eventually says "Ok! One more chance. What is 2 plus 2?"
    Nicko closes his eyes and after a whole minute eventually says "Four".
    Around the stadium 80,000 drummers start yelling, "Give him another chance, give him another chance!"

    A scientist did some research in the field of animal behaviour, and decided to run a test with dogs. His research showed that after a certain period of time, the dogs started to assume certain habits from their masters. Thus he filled a room with bones, and examined how different dogs reacted to the sight. First he let an architecht's dog examine the pile of bones. The dog constructed a fine model of a city out of the bones, complete with streets and parks. The scientist was intrigued, and made notes out of the whole process. He reassembled the bones in a huge pile, and let a mathematician's dog loose. After sniffing at the bones the dog split the pile in two identical piles, then split those two piles, and so forth until the room was filled with 64 identical piles, all in a symmetrical order. The scientist was overjoyed, and again scribbled some notes out of the experiment, and reassembled the bones in a single pile. Then he let a drummer's dog examine the bones... Or would have, but the dog came a couple of hours late, ate all the bones, ****ed the two other dogs, and took the rest of the day off.

    A drummer was walking in a field, and noticed a shephard and his flock of sheep. He remembers his childhood dream about having a pet sheep, and so he walks to the shephard and asks him:
    "Will you give me a sheep, If I guess how many sheep there are in your flock?"
    "A bit strange request, but why not."
    "I'd say you've got 287 sheep."
    To the shephards amazement the bassist hit the mark, and so he lets the drummer choose any sheep he likes. Soon after the drummer has taken his pick, the shephard gets an idea.
    "Do you give me back my sheep if I can guess your profession?"
    "Well... OK! Sounds fair."
    "I'd say you're a drummer."
    "How the hell did you know that?"
    "Put the dog down and we'll talk about it..."

    Okay I have more and there drummer jokes too. I also have bassists jokes too. E-mail me if you want the complete lists!
    (If this offended any drummers out there - You know it's true! I admit it...)
