snookering you tonight!
When I was a kid, one of my friends had a kazoo. The thing is, my younger brother could never work out how to play it. We told him to just blow through it like you’re blowing up a balloon. That gave us *literally* years of amusement.
Also, seeing a Jazz Band marching through a Durham colliery town was one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen.
we had a music lesson in school. we had a supply teacher, who obviously didnt have any ideas on what to do with us. she asked us if any of us played instruments.
Mark Shanley puts his hand up.
"I play the kazoo miss". Laughter around the class. The teacher's face betrays that she is not quite sure what a Kazoo is. "Don't laugh, the kazoo is just as good as any other instrument, Im sure. How long have you been playing?"
"Ive had lessons since I was about 6. I'm grade 7".
Rapturous laughter, more at the fact the teacher has totally bought it. Teacher gets annoyed at this incessant disrespect for her new love, the kazoo. Whole class, except Mark Shanley, has to stay in at break as punishment. Hats off to you Mark.
