Time for a light hearted thread, i think, that's not about reeds or makes of bassoon...
Put all your jokes n stuff here! I have quite a few so i'll start us off:

Q. What are bassoons good for?
A. Kindling an accordion fire.

Q. Which is better, a bassoon or an oboe?
A. A Bassoon - it makes more toothpicks.

"It [the bassoon] is a bass instrument without proper bass strength, oddly weak in sound, bleating blurlesque"
Thomas Mann - novelist/critic.

"The bassoon in the orchestra plays the same role as Gorgonzola among cheeses - a figure or fun. Actually, the basoon can be the most romantic and passionate of instruments, and Gorgonzola can be the finest of cheeses, but they must both be treated properly."
Cecil Gray - music critic/composer

Q. How many bassoonists does it take to change a light bulb?
A. Only one, but they'll insist on going through about five bulbs before they find one that suits the particular room and situation.

Now you go!
