I am hard-pressed to decide whether their "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" is funnier than this. Thanks, definitely a day-brightener!

Ukes are cool, used to have a dude in Grad School who played one, plastic one no less, with a violin bow. He played it as good luck during our kiln firings in the Ceramic Dept. Seemed to work.

Bill M, My wife and I were marvelling at all the stuff we'd probably never see if it weren't for the internet.

Anon, I had a ukelele in high school in 1969 and did a Tiny Tim impersonation for the talent show. (Ceramics was my favorite subject, BTW). My sister made off with it. My kids bought me one for Christmas this year, so I'm getting ready to gear up again. My fingers are too old and arthritic to play rock and roll anymore, so I'm hoping this will fill the gap.

Took me a minute to find Curmudgeophan (he's actually at 2:20-21).

But,... he's smiling!

Oh! This is PERFECT!!! My husband is very into Jake Shimabukuro right now--even to the point of having the Pandora station running every night while he works. I've GOT to share this with him. Thanks for sharing it. Wonderful!
