The fact that you have found it "not funny" is your problem, not the web page owner's !   First: This site was clearly labled as a joke (note the word "Funnies" in the URL).   Second: IT was CLEAN   Third: IT is a perfectly good Musical "Shaggy Dog Story" in the best traditions of these long winded puns. (double rise, hand pumped, of course)     Douglas A.

But has anyone heard this one? One day old JS and his buddies were digging into a = hot session of trio sonatas when the violinist's G string snapped. Not having = a replacement, Bach quickly fashoned one out of several hairs from his = powdered wig, thus saving the day. This is the first known playing of Bach's hair = for a G-string.
