(Submitted by friend of the site, and our sound engineer, Brian Hart)
A while back I was listening to a George Hrab podcast, and he related a joke about bassoon players.
The joke itself is not too funny, the gist is that it is not a sexy or practical instrument to learn as a career choice in music.
The next day I randomly chose to listen to a 3 month-old WTF Podcast hosted by Marc Maron, this one featuring The Office’s Rainn (Dwight Shrute) Wilson. A few minutes into the show Wilson mentioned that he played bassoon in High School.
In a Universe this large, and vast, and old, this must happen occasionally, bassooner or later.
