Bagpipes





Q. What do you call 100 bagpipes at the bottom of the sea?

A. A good start.

"Gentleman" defined: Someone who knows how to play the bagpipes, but doesn't.

Q. Why do pipers walk when they play?

A. They are trying to get away from the sound!

Thought: How do you know when it's time to tune your bagpipes?

Q. How can you tell the difference between bagpipe songs?

A. By their names.

LOL my favorite from the link is:

"Thank God there is no odor" - Oscar Wilde, commenting on bagpipes.

OK I am going to admit it. I like the bagpipes

I have to be nice -
our city's only highschool is known for their amazing bagpipe players (would those be bagpipers? baggies? boys in skirts?)

They are usually referred to as pipers and drummers - the skirt is a kilt - for goodness sake never let a Scotsman hear you refer to his national dress as a 'skirt'.... Wars have been fought over remarks like that
