A C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar.
The bartender says: "Sorry, but we don't
serve minors." So the E-flat 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
straight 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 B-flat
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 E-flat, 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 until his company
downsized) says, "You're looking sharp
tonight, come on in! This could be a
major development." This proves to be
the case, as the E-flat takes off the
suit, and everything else, and stands
there au natural.

Eventually, the C sobers up, and
realizes in horror that he's under a
rest. The C is brought to trial, is
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 accusations to the contrary are
bassless.

The bartender decides, however, that
since he's only had tenor so patrons,
with the soprano out in the bathroom,
and everything has become alto much
treble, he needs a rest, and closes the bar.
