Best use of the Banjo-Ukulele

Now before you get all:

I'm NOT listening to any banjo music . . .  

OR ukulele music . . . 

AND I'm certainly NOT going to listen to any banjo-ukulele music . . . 

EVEN IF there is such a thing . . . 

which I doubt!

Up to you of course, but tomorrow at work, when everyone else is talking about the banjo-ukulele, you'll be left out. 

And, because I'm looking out for your best interests, there is another clip, (with a better known string instrument) with similar commentary.

"We have not found it difficult to deal with the Bush administration in light of the resemblance that it bears to the regimes in our countries, half of which are ruled by the military and the other half which are ruled by the sons of kings." - Osama bin Laden

"President Obama gave the order for Navy SEALs to kill bin Laden. When President Bush heard about it, he was really upset, saying, 'I could have used seals?'" – Conan O'Brien

"After all the talk about caves, bin Laden was hiding in a million-dollar mansion in Pakistan. The CIA became suspicious when they learned there was a million-dollar mansion in Pakistan." – Jimmy Kimmel

"I think the next election just got a lot easier for President Obama 'cause his response to every question during the debates will be: 'Wait, I forget…Did you kill Osama Bin Laden? Or did I kill Osama Bin Laden. Oh no, it was me, wasn't it?'" – Craig Ferguson

Oh wait! Those aren't Bin Laden quotes. They are from an American fundamentalist.  

“I had a student ask me, 'Could the savior you believe in save Osama bin Laden?' Of course, we know the blood of Jesus Christ can save him, and then he must be executed.”- Jerry Falwell 

"The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil to keep Christians from running their own country." -  Jerry Falwell

"Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them." Jerry Falwell

"I am such a strong admirer and supporter of George W. Bush that if he suggested eliminating the income tax or doubling it, I would vote yes on first blush." - Jerry Falwell

Question posted online after 9/11, possibly by a student lacking in textbooks, Soviet propaganda or otherwise: 

Best Answer: 

You know the Taj Mahal is in India and is a Hindu monument, right?

Evidently the ukulele, banjo and the like could be a fundamentalism antidote. 

Maybe I should find some people who play and create a fundamentalism-free safe house. Come over anytime.
