Why did the base player hit the drummer? It seems the drummer had detuned one of the base player's strings, and wouldn't tell him which one. :)
Hmmm. A bass player joke coming from a drummer, in which the drummer spells "bass" as "base" is the height of irony, don'tcha think? :-)
Probably a victim of an over aggressive spell-check.
Brian Regan has a joke about spell-checkers, something along the lines of...
"I bought a computer the other day, but I got a cheap one 'cause it's
all I could afford. But now I'm thinking I should've saved up for a
better one. It has this feature where you start typing a word and it
finishes the word for you before you even type it. But you can tell mine
was done on a budget. I started typing a letter and was putting the date
on. I went to type Monday and only got to m-o-n, and the computer
says, 'Did you mean Mongoose?'"
I explained to Chris that I wasn't really sure of which spelling to use. I do submit that my spell checker passed on the word, but I'll take credit for the mistake. I don't spell well, and I've never been comfortable with the spelling of 'that' word. 'Bass' looks like it should be a fish, yet 'base' goes to a position in the ball game, or a negative description. Apparently I'm neither a speller nor a comic. A pity, though, since, IMO, the joke is a good one. :(
