This, indeed, is a mutable good.


This, also, is a mutable good.



Evil.

My very own "Truth is Stranger" moment: years ago, I was in a choir, which did ecumenical services, and we opened a song with kazoos rather than the scored trumpets... because "trumpets would have overwhelmed the relatively small space."

It was a moment when I recognized there are, indeed, universally recognized liturgical limits.

I was very young. But the expressions on those in the congregation--the choir was in the back, and the heads whipped around as one--were priceless.

You have to admit that a kazoo is a big step above, say, wax paper over a comb.

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Yes, but is the kazoo not mutable? I mean, like, if we were to throw said instrument of evil into the sea. Or a fire.

I almost spit out my coffee on that one.

That was quite funny.

Martin said...

You ARE joking about the service with the kazoo's...right?

You must have missed the 70's.
