What confuses the rest of the band/orchestra about the instruments
  • Piccolo: How do they manage to hit those high notes without killing their ears?
  • Flute: Why do they hold their instruments sideways?
  • Clarinet: Why are they always complaining about reeds?
  • Saxophone: Why do they keep playing jazz solos at random times?
  • Oboe: Why are you carrying a knife?
  • Bassoon: What are you???
  • Trumpet: How are they so confident in themselves if they don't know any of the notes?
  • Horn: Why are they always so put together all the time?
  • Trombone: Why do they keep acting like 6 year olds?
  • Euphonium: Why are you so offended by being compared to tubas?
  • Tuba: How do you not get bored by having to play quarter notes all the time?
  • Violin: Why do you care so much who's violin 1 and who's violin 2?
  • Viola: Why do you stare at the violins dreamily during rehearsal?
  • Cello: Why are you always out of tune?
  • Bass: Why are your parts so boring?
  • Percussion: How do you manage to play so many different instruments?
  • Piano: How do you manage to play different things with both your hands?
