Music Theory Geek Joke

This is a scream. (And once you've all finished the music theory CD ROM, I bet you'll get it, too!)

A C, and Eb, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve minors."

So the Eb leaves and the C and the G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and the G is out flat. An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.

A D comes into the bar and heads for the bathroom, saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a second." Then an A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices a Bb hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, "Get out now. You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."

The Eb, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3 piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender (who used to have a nice corporate job) says, "You're looking sharp tonight - Come on in. This could be a major development." This proves to be the case, as the Eb takes off his suit, and everything else, and is au natural.

Eventually the C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. The C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility. On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all contrary motions are bassless.

My comment comes years too late, but, oooh, this is a very bad joke, indeed.
