This, on the other hand, is a keys tone.

F flat? Really????

Could be a bass clef - A flat?

I think ice creams that have all the ice cream at the top and nothing in the cone are a tease cone. You eat them with a spooner.

I looked for F flat on my piano all night long. Nope, I could only find an E.

The Keystone Kops were frequently criticized for excessive use of farce.

Kus asub tualettruum?

This means, 'where is the toilet?'

You might describe this a key Estonian phrase.

Nobody leave the room, someone's filched Demo's F flat.

Looks like a job for the key's gone kops. I think Lionel Richie could be a prime suspect.

Would it also be the case that a Keystone Kop in the Tour de France would have far cycling to do?

One minute I'm sure a Keystone Kop would require it, the next minute I'm not so sure.

It's a vicious cycle.

Hardly a pun, but I once worked with a bandleader who announced "my personal request is To Be with You One Hour Tonight in A flat".

We also played a rag which he claimed was named after a rugby match: Fiji Defeat

As it happened, the music was a lot better than the announcements, which he admitted had been honed on years of public indifference.

Which inevitabley leads me to the foreman on a building site. When told the brickies were running out of bricks on the last house and wouldn't have enough for any more than the ground floor, he said, "Never mind, just bung a low roof on it."

Funny! What instrument? (Mine's piano).

I get the feeling it may have been his French Horn.

Fruity puns are ok.

So are computer puns.

October is not a time for mintsing words, it's hard to know ware to begin and when to softly ware something nicer.

Singing in a pub one night, I asked if anyone had any requests. Some bight spark piped up, "Yes, 'Over the Hills and Far Away', as far away as possible!" Another joined in with "Do you know The Sound of Silence?" "Yes" I foolishly replied, he said "Well shut the *^%&*>* up then."
