Piano Tuner Joke

Post by THEHORN » Wed Sep 24, 2008 5:08 pm

A famous pianist comes to a major city to play a recital for the first time.
He hires a piano tuner to check the piano whose name is Mr. Oppernockity.
Oppernockity tunes the piano and leaves. Later that evening, the pianist is still not satisfied with the instrument, so he calls the tuner again and asks him to do more work on it. The tuner says,"Sorry, but I can't do any more work on the piano." Puzzled, the pianist asks why. The tuner replies, "Haven't you heard about me? Oppernockity tunes but once."

May I add the obligatory groan for all of us?

Yes, I've heard that one before - but it always bring a laff! Thank you for the laff for this day! [And I'm a piano tuner/technician myself!]

Some years ago when we had a piano tuner in our social group we always inquired about his health. We were afraid of mercury getting into our tuner.

Of course! I had the same problem whenever I had to tuna fish. But I since learned that the problem was with my first fish favourite: swordfish, broiled in butter/lemon sauce.

Oh my Cod, Lance! I think you said that sole pun just for the halibut.
