Horn of Plenty ?

Horn of Plenty

When a music student brought his French horn to my shop for repair, he complained that the instrument “felt stuffy” and he couldn’t blow air through it.

It’s not unusual to find partial blockages in brass instruments if small items get lodged in the tubing, but when I tested the instrument, the horn was completely blocked.

After much probing and prodding, a small tangerine dropped out of the bell.
“Oh,” said the musician when I handed him the fruit.

Seeing the bewildered look on my face, he explained, “My mom used the horn for a cornucopia in a Thanksgiving centerpiece.”

I thought the punch line was going to be, "Oh, yes, I forgot... I lost my mute and used a tangerine instead."

Lol, T(h)ink, yes, it is a really unexpected issue, even for "the crazy orchestra":

(the most known scenes)


Lol, reminds me of Charlie Chaplin or French pantomime.  :D

Lol - indeed, T(h)ink, the old "classics" have been and still are generating and inspiring the great laughs.
