Default The Times Being What They Are...



Greetings to All,

To quote the above Subject Line... "The Times
Being What They Are"... I discover that I have
a strong yen... indeed!!... a hanker... for just a
bit of ... frivolity... and have noticed that for
some long time... there have not been any
additions... in our Piping and Drumming Jokes
section... down below. (??)

Ergo... this Beer Tent-ish observation and request...
with our Moderators consent... that we might bestir
ourselves... with some forthcoming... levity... :)
(I suspect that the talent is... out there. :)

In such days... in wouldn't be considered... amiss...

Regards to All,

Pip01

I suggest we have a competition to see who can fashion the best anti-covid face mask with built in filters made from an old pipe bag, drone chords, valves/tone enhancers, hemp (waxed or otherwise), black tape and the moisture control system of your choice. Donít get the valves the wrong way round or youíll suffocate. If you choose to use a non-synthetic bag, please explain whether the seasoning side is face in or face out, and why. Extra points for the design that has the least impact on the tone of your voice. If you can incorporate a blood oxygen monitor made from a repurposed drone tuner you get double points.
Please post photos of you wearing your design.
Winner gets to present the best bass drum prize at the 2020 world championships.

No Joke: I played two engagements last week: one at a Nursing Home for Father's Day, the other a funeral at the local Melkite Catholic Cathedral. For both, I was solo, stationed outside and isolated and for each wore a mask of the same tartan material as the kilts I wore. Each mask has a flap which covers a button hole-type opening to admit the blowstick, but which closes with Velcro when not blowing the pipes. I experimented with a disposable mask as prototype. The masks have cotton ( Bandana) inner linings.

"A trick offer?; 2020 worlds is off,..."


Wow, you're right. And the best bass drum prize was discontinued some years ago.


How about the winner gets to present the best bass drum prize at the Glenfiddich Champs instead?

Greetings to All,

Hmm... and Well... such dis-combobulation... and
meandering so far off the requested motif... "The
Times Being What They Are"... perhaps a reprising
of the original request...

Any out here... have any bits of piping and drumming
humor... to share in our appropriate section... to perhaps
lessen... our present load... and bring at least... a smile ??

Just a thought... :)

Regards to All,

Pip01

To be honest I thought my original suggestion was so ridiculous that it would be clear it was intended as a joke, and hoped that people would run with it. Same for the follow up comment. Never thought it would lead to serious posts about wearing masks while playing. Guess I'm just not funny.

No, Neil, your original post was very funny! We have a paucity of critical thinkers. But be assured that a number of us were cracking up over your post.
