Businesses in Cahoots

Businesses will create joint ventures to improve products and market penetration.

A nearby town has a pair of businesses, side-by-side, that together inspire laughs or dread.
So what to think… Coincidence? Or a shady partnership?? I’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

(I saw this in-person years ago but couldn’t successfully get a digital camera photo, so this is from google Street View.)

Two businesses that no-one would want to see partnered together.

A funny musical instrument

From DailyMotion.comThis is an instrument that is used in serious music productions, but funny by itself, makes me laugh out loud.

It’s known as a jaw harp, or Jew’s harp, or juice harp, or mouth harp, or ozark harp, or trump, or guimbarde. Yes, that many (probably more) various names for the instrument.

So how can it be taken seriously with so many names? How can it be taken seriously when it sounds so funny and is played basically by making a “twang-a-lang” sound inside your mouth?

But it makes for a good laugh. Oh, and I’ve personally owned a jaw harp for at least 15-20 years. But I gave up learning because I didn’t know how it was supposed to be played… sheesh.
