    That reminds me of a story...
    There was once a snail who was sick and tired of his reputation for being so slow. He decided to get some fast wheels to make up the difference.
    After shopping around a while, he decided that the Datson 240-Z was the car to get. So the snail goes to the nearest Datsun dealer and says he wants to buy the 240-Z, but he wants it repainted "240-S".
    The dealer asks, "Why 'S'?"
    The snail replies, "'S' stands for snail. I want everybody who sees me roaring past to know who's driving."
    Well, the dealer doesn't want to lose the unique opportunity to sell a car to a snail, so he repaints the car for the snail.
    The snail gets his new car and spent the rest of his days roaring happily down the highway at top speed.
    And, whenever anyone would see him zooming by, they'd say, "Wow! Look at that S-car go!"

    So let's go a little higher on the Evolutionary Scale:

    How do you tell the difference between a frog and a horny toad?

    A frog goes "ribb-it, ribb-it"
    A horny toad goes "rub-it, rub-it"

    Well, it had better have triggers or you will quickly find yourself being looked down upon in your BBB (Bahamian Beach Band).

    Get a live one and make conch soup while you're cleaning it before practicing.

    How do you keep the trumpet section from clamming on the high seas?

    Give them a conch to the head.
