Two Drums and a Cymbal Fall off a Cliff

  • Publicado em 13 Mai 2009
  • www.tomscott.com - "Two Drums and a Cymbal Fall off a Cliff - b'doom, tssh". That's the joke: but does it really give you that rimshot sting you hear in comedy? We investigate.

    The joke might've _fallen short_ but thanks to the algorithm it became a...

    As an unpaid and untrained lawyer, representing the drums and cymbal, I present to the court evidence that my clients did not fall off a cliff, rather upon close examination, they were thrown off a cliff. We are suing those who threw my clients off.

      What you see is my client trying to keep the two drums and cymbal from jumping off the cliffing and trying to harm an individual on the ground. What you see is not them being thrown, but my client trying to grab them in the air.

      Objection! The allegation that the prosecutor's clients are inanimate objects are irrelevant. The defendant clearly places the drums and cymbal on a slope near the edge of a cliff which then proceeded to fall off the cliff. I rest my case.

    I play drums quite a bit as a hobby and the snare and cymbal look like they could've come from a normal drum set (though that cymbal isn't exactly one you'd find in a plain ordinary drum set), but the other drum looks too short to be a floor tom and too small to be a regular bass drum. I suspect that these were the bass, snare, and crash of a kid's drum set.
