Heard backstage: "Will the musicians and the drummer please come to the



In New York City, an out of work jazz drummer named Ed was thinking of

throwing himself off a bridge. But then he ran into a former booking agent

who told him about the fantastic opportunities for drummers in Iraq. The

agent said "If you can find your way over there, just take my card and look

up the bandleader named Faisal--he's the large guy with the beard wearing

gold pajamas and shoes that curl up at the toes." Ed hit up everyone he

knew and borrowed enough to buy transport to Iraq. It took several days to

arrange for passport, visas, transportation into Iraq and the shipping of

his equipment, but he was finally on his way.

Ed arrived in Baghdad and immediately started searching for Faisal. He

found guys in pajamas of every color but gold. Finally, in a small

coffeehouse, he saw a huge man with a beard--wearing gold pajamas and shoes

that curled up at the toes! Ed approached him and asked if he was Faisal.

He was. Ed gave him the agent's card and Faisal's face brightened into a

huge smile.

"You're just in time--I need you for a gig tonight. Meet me at the market

near the mosque at 7:30 with your equipment."

"But," gasped Ed, "what about a rehearsal?"

"No time--don't worry." And with that, Faisal disappeared.

Ed arrived in the market at 7:00 to set up his gear. He introduced himself

to the other musicians, who were all playing instruments he had never seen

in his life. At 7:30 sharp, Faisal appeared and hopped on the bandstand,

his gold pajamas glittering in the twilight. Without a word to the

musicians, he lifted his arm for the downbeat.

"Wait." shouted Ed. "What are we playing?"

Faisal shot him a look of frustration and shouted back, "Fake it! Just give

me heavy afterbeats on 7 and 13."


A drummer, sick of all the drummer jokes, decides to change his instrument.

After some thought, he decides on the accordion. So he goes to the music

store and says to the owner, "I'd like to look at the accordions, please."

The owner gestures to a shelf in the corner and says "All our accordions

are over there."

After browsing, the drummer says, "I think I'd like the big red one in the
