The Fox
I woke up this morning with a memory in my head. When I was first living in LA, back in the late 70's, my roommate got a tip about this guy who played piano at a bar and who could chug a beer while standing on his head. Well, we couldn't miss that. So we managed to find the place and spent a night laughing our asses off. I looked him up this morning, and thanks to the magic of the internet, here are two great links about this weird fellow.

He was most famous for composing a quartet that brings us to this quiz.
Toilet Art
You've heard of Toilet Humor? Well roll over in your grave, here comes toilet art. My latest hare-brained scheme is to market art on toilet paper that can be put, one sheet at a time, into the toilet (say, when important guests come over) to create that "one-of-a-kind" art experience. Be the first on your block!

Dumb Joke
An elephant, a rabbit, a priest, a soldier, and a blond walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Hey, is this some kind of a joke?"
