OK, I have to share this... I received the following this morning from the
Balkan music mailing list I'm also on:
I heard this story on the local news this morning.
It seems that the police responded to reports of a disturbance at
a laundromat. When they got there, they found a man and two
women, dressed only in their underwear, dancing to music provided
by a completely naked accordion player. When questioned by police,
the man stated that he could only play the accordion if he wasn't
wearing any clothes.
Hey! He wasn't nekkid - he was wearing an accordion!
