Must be that's where they got that song "meow meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow........ In that commercial.

A GUY WALKS INTO A BAR WITH A SMALL DOG. The bartender says, "Get out of here with that dog!"

The guy says, "But this isn't just any dog... this dog can play the piano!"


The bartender replies, "Well, if he can play that piano, you both can stay... and have a drink on the house!"


So the guy sits the dog on the piano stool, and the dog starts playing. Everything from Ragtime to Mozart, and the bartender and patrons are really enjoying the music.


Suddenly a bigger dog runs in, grabs the small dog by the scruff of the neck, and drags him out.


The bartender asks the guy, "What was that all about?"


The guy replies, "Oh, that was his mother. She wanted him to be a doctor."

Well, in Canada, we can't have guns! But if we could, I'd get this pink handled one!



So will just have to settle for this SNUB=NOSED vehicle (or road hog) to run you over if you come to mess with my piano! wink

Oh My...the second worst thing I can imagine is being chased by a pink Pigmobile...the worst...getting shot by a mad Canadian lady packin' a pink handled snub nose pistol. Canadian piano tuners deserve hazardous duty pay!!!!!

The pink mobile looks like quite the oinker vehicle. Makes me wonder if the horn oinks too?

My tuning hammer makes a pretty good hammer sometimes!

Time for work!
