On the morning of an important recital in London, a famous American violinist stopped in at a small Leicester Square shop and asked the girl for an E string.

"Yes, sir," she replied dubiously, and disappeared for several minutes.

When she returned, she had in her hand a box full of assorted pieces of cord, string and old rubber hands. "

'Ere, sir," she said, "you pick hit yourself. I can't tell the bloody 'e strings from the she strings."

@ Marianne:  Die "unter" Saite?  :O :blush: :blush: :O

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, T(h)ink, the pun is super Saite (string) and Seite (page, side) - and I was indeed thinking of the English version of "Unterwäsche".

I think that everybody will understand ...
