OK, now that's a clever response.....
I've got to admit I'm proud of that one
At least you didn't come up with 'a soulo mute'.
You win this thread, and possibly the entire forum. :-D
As to insertion... a good friend of mine (sometime solo trumpet with Berlin Philharmonic under Karajan) during his student days at Salzburg had this traumatic experience: He was working in his dorm room when suddenly cries for help erupted from the room next door. He rushed over to find his neighbour (an extremely blond girl) stark naked on her bed, with an H&B straight mute embedded, well, in the orifice underneath her navel. The mute had sucked itself fast and every movement of the mute was extremely painful. The only help he could give her was to call the emergency services and to tell her that next time, she would not need a mute but should just knock on the wall to his room...
That was in the early 1960's!!
...with the special ribbed corks for enhanced pleasure.....
Aaaahhhhh, Excalibur! Only King Arthur can free this one up!
OR the good friend could have drilled a hole in the bottom of the straight mute to relieve the vacuum created by puling on a closed system. What do you think the nibs at the bottom of coke bottles are for? They were put there to make it easy to break that part of the glass and prevent shattering of the bottle to relieve the vacuum caused by this exact creative use of their bottles. The coke people thought of everything... perverts!
The question is was she "A whiter shade of pale" of more "50 Shades of Grey"
I should imagine she was "Deep Purple". Any way, that's a mute point!
