That's awesome! I knew the restaurant's name clicked somewhere in my brain. Either way Matt came up with the name...heh...it's pretty funny.

Oh no! What has my UserName done? Seriously, I'm just a trombone player who works at a summer camp where the kids call the staff "aunts" and "uncles." But now I guess I get to be part of a big happy family of instruments.

Thanks for the offer, 'Dad, but I'm much more interested in your wine list. <P>I'm quite the Champagne-sniffer -- just love my flutes.

I can't believe I'm so late in sounding off on this one. Not a devout Sluggite, I simply thought Le Snootier was a place where French Nose Horns were available. Of course, each would come with a Pickolo.<P>Unce Trom, I understand you're just celebrating your instrument in your Keenspot Username, as am I. I wanted to name my children BandoneonBaby and ConcertinaKid, but my wife and I didn't see A to A on it.<P>You know, all of us should be wary: Creating puns this bad could cost us our homes and jobs. That'd make us all oboes.<P>You know, I'm starting to hurt myself with these. But I'm an accordion player for 24 years. You know a little thing like PAIN can't make me stop anything....<P>------------------

Hey, Major TomTom, I just met your brother Tim. I didn't know your last name was Pany!<P>He was telling how Mr. Milligan was thinking about naming Franz Lost the "official composer" of this comic.<P>But seriously, I hear that at the REAL Le Snootier, you can get $1 Drum and Cokes during happy hour. I'll see you there!<P>You've been a lovely audience! Good night, folks!<P>------------------

Bachardi is excellent of course, if you're going to be doing your drinking in a repeatable pattern.<P>But if you're looking to be in total control of the evening, Jaegermaestro is the liquor I recommend.<P>PS: Isn't it about time we heard from Padre here?<P>------------------

Al-l-l-righty now!
You were just trying to drum up some business, eh dad? Well, you snared me!
I would like to go see the revivial of "Cats" - Rum-Tum-Tugger is my favorite.
(Except for Jamaican Rum-Tum-Tugger - 151 proof there!)
I was slow in responding because I don't like to horn in on others' punnery. Sorry Uncle Trombone, couldn't help sliding that one in there.
I wish I could say I was a musician, but if I did it would make me a lyre. I wish I could play an instrument. I bet I could make some lute doing it. But the people in my parish would just harp on me for playing so poorly.
I really don't want to string you along any longer, so get my keys and drive off in my Honda A-chord. (That last one was kind of flat, wasn't it?) I'll tune in again real soon. Or, as that foreign actor says, "I'll be Bach!"

'bout time you chimed in, Padre. Can I call you Pops? Just for this theme, of course...<P>Aside to everyone: Couldn't you just see the Pad rolling up his sleeves, sliding one side of his collar out and saying "NOW will you give me some punning room?!?!?" <P>(everyone now: "They say there's a priest in the forest...")<P>------------------

Some of these are so dis"concert"ing that I may have to decrescendo-ver the Hollywood Bowl (If you know what I mean!) But seriously kids, puns are not my fortissimo and I must "Bow" out of this one.<P>----------------
