Size does matter

So in die jare van die Tsaar van Rusland en die Kaiser van Duitsland is daar ‘n simfonie orkes wat die wêreld vol toer. Eendag sien die orkeslede die ou wat die piccolo speel lyk nie te lekker nie. hulle vra hom wat is fout. “It’s this bloody piccolo” sê hy.

“What about the piccolo, what is the matter?”

 

“When we play for the Czar, he says ‘Fill their instruments with roubles’. You guys who play the tuba, the horn, the trumpet, you get many, many roubles, but the piccolo, he  take no roubles. But when we play for the Sherman Kaiser, he says ‘Stick zer instruments in zer back sides’. The tuba, he won’t go, the horn, he won’t go, the trumpet, he won’t go, but the bloody piccolo, he goes!”
