    Organ joke

    True story:
    Today in church our pipe organ had a stuck pipe playing the same note all of the first hymn. The organist continued playing like any professional would. After the hymn (3 verses), someone unplugged the blower to stop the note (it was a low Eb). When it was finally quiet again, one of the asst pastors said, "Whew! Glad that's over. It sounded like 'out-of-tune' bagpipes -- but I guess that would be redundant".

    Maybe it's more of a bagpipes joke.

  2. Bagpipes... what comes to mind you would think maybe something classy like the annual Military Tattoo in Edinburgh Scotland, but no my first thought was Fat B****** from Austin Powers! Imagine him serenading your congregation!
