Musical joke (bad)

The Boston Symphony Orchestra was playing Beethoven's
Ninth Symphony
with Keith Lockhart, conductor.

Near the last movement there was a long passage in which
the basses had nothing to play. -One bassist turned to the
other and said, "Let's get a drink next door. .He'll never miss
us." -His colleague agreed and they slipped out backstage.

A few drinks later, one of them said, "Shouldn't we head
back?" -The other said, "Naw, I put a rubber band around
the last few pages of the score to slow him down."

After a few more drinks, they staggered back and found
the conductor glaring at them. -Keith Lockhart was furious!

Of course he was.

It was the bottom of The Ninth, the score was tied,
and the basses were loaded.

Don't forget there were two men out.

Hello, Ackbach!

Don't forget there were two men out.
I forgot! . . . *blush*

Thanks for catching that!
