European Instrument Comments Competition
In a pleasing trend towards metaphor (obfuscation?) the Charlemagne building appears to have rebranded itself the “European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights”, if this latest banner is to be believed.
Bagpipes: a sack of wind inclined to make unpleasant screeching sounds
Harp: almost transparent, but on closer inspection has many strings attached
Fiddle: enough said
Organ: vastly complex, impenetrable, various buttons and pedals and bits and pieces, but which effectively just blows hot air from left to right
Double bass: large, unwieldy and yet barely audible
A saxophone: blown by big black men (that’s enough, Ed.)
And it’s over to you – leave your suggestions in the comments … best one wins Iceland.
