Clef and society

A musicologist says to her sociologist friend, “We’re not that different you and I.”

“How so?” the sociologist asks skeptically.

“We both study cymbalic interaction.”

To Frisbee or not to Frisbee

The mayor of a town with a sizable public park  wanted to tear down the area of the park used to play a game some refer to as Frisbee golf or disc golf . The metal was getting rusty, the ground was unkept, and it went unused and some people had been complaining about it being a potential safety hazard to small children. The town budget had been facing difficulties for years and he didn’t want to be seen as frivolously spending money on something that wasn’t deemed emergency or necessary to the functioning of the town. So instead of having the department of public works take care of it he decided to hire two sociologists instead.

A reporter questioned him on the wisdom of this hiring decision. But he retorted, “On the contrary, I heard that they would be a great choice to deconstruct the disc course.”
