To improve morale, a mine owner bought a piano for sub-level seven. From there ventilation shafts would carry the music throughout the mine. Unfortunately during installation the winch broke dropping the piano. Upon hearing a scream and a crash, the mine owner demanded, “What was that noise?”

“I believe,” his foreman answered, “A flat minor.”


      1. Yeah, been thinking about Dr John lately too, mainly as in updating all my links on my blog I just can’t bring myself to get rid of link to Dr John’s blog…

  1. Quilly…?
    This was terrible!
    But in a loving tribute to Dr.John way.
    Loved your 55…Really!
    Thanks for playing, thanks for the whimsy, and have a Kick Ass Week-End!

    1. G-Man — I wrote a half-dozen of these and had my love read them. When he told me they were terrible, I knew they were perfect!

    1. Thanx, Doug. I think you’re going to enjoy the next several Fridays. I have 4 more and Amoeba says they are all really bad.

  2. ha ha ha! I laughed out loud at that, didn’t see it coming, or falling flat, which this did not!

    and appropriate to the times……
    Did you hear the one about the man who walked into the bar…..
    he said “ouch”.
    have a great weekend!

    1. Just Me — I did indeed take an old one-liner and refashion it into a story. My inspiration stems from a wonderful man named Dr. John who used to write stuff like this himself before he passed away.

    1. Barbara — I got the punchline from a one liner and wrote the story to “flesh” it out. I have a couple more based on other one-liners you’ll be seeing on future Fridays.
