New Music Pun

Here is another “groaner” for those of you who do not like puns. This one is also about music.


It seems that they were making a new road through Vienna, Austria. The road happened to pass

through the cemetery where Beethoven was buried. While they were digging up his coffin, they

heard scratching noises from inside. They opened it up and found a little, shriveled-up man busily

erasing pages and pages of his music.

When they asked him what he was doing, he answered sharply, “I am decomposing!”



I warned you that I like puns!

Welcome to the CHUCKLES page.

Each week, on this page you will find something funny. Often, it will be a joke, but on occasion, there may be a funny poem, activity or piece of trivia. Something that made me laugh. You like to laugh, don’t you? Even the Bible says in Proverbs 17:22, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Since I was little, I have collected jokes. Like my Dad, I love to hear a good joke and I love to tell a good joke. It is therapeutic to laugh and I so enjoy watching (and hearing) others giggle, chuckle, snort, or even guffaw when they hear a good joke. I have many years’ worth of jokes on hand and each week I’ll share one or two with you. What you won’t find on my CHUCKLES page is a dirty joke. I firmly believe that jokes do not have to be filthy to be funny.

To kick off my brand-new website, I would like to start with my very favorite joke. Even though it uses a music vocabulary word, I still think you will enjoy it

There was a fellow who had a drinking problem and his wife was fed up with it. She told him to go to the doctor and get a check-up. She told him not to come home if the doctor told him he was an alcoholic. So grudgingly, he went to the doctor and sure enough, the doctor told him he had alcoholism.

“Oh, Doc, isn’t there another word for it? My wife won’t let me come home if that is what I have.”

“Sorry, but there’s no other word for it.”

As the fellow slowly walked home, he passed by a music store and saw the word “Syncopation” on a poster on the wall.

“That sounds like a good word. I’ll tell my wife that’s what I have.”

He arrives home and of course, his wife asks what the diagnosis was.

“I have syncopation.”

“What in the world is syncopation?”

“I really don’t know,” he said and quickly left the room.

The wife found a dictionary and promptly looked up the word.

“Syncopation is the irregular movement from bar to bar.”

Did you laugh? Feel free to pass it on. And if you feel so inclined, send me a funny story or joke now and then. I would love to hear them. Keep chuckling; sometimes, it makes people wonder what you’re up to. And it does your heart good.
