Q: How do you keep your violin from being stolen?
A: Put it in a ukulele case.It was hard day's night
I had just walked out of Moores Contemporary Fine Art Building in Freo, mind jangling from the rehearsal with the Mill point Quartet and aided by a long Mac made by handsome Tom in Moores on Moores.
Mill Point were rehearsing a piece theu had assembled to fit exactly an 8 min segment of vision of the top 125 entries in the Fremantle Portrait Prize
Then, this apparition appeared in front of me with Dame Edna sunnies and a ukelele under her arm. I asked her name and she said, 'Im Jezebel' with a wicked smile.
'But your name badge says Shirley'
'That's me darling; Shirley Jezebel'
I tried to sniff if Miss Jezebel had been drinking but all I could smell was 1950's perm lotion (man repellant)
Whipping my my trusty iPhone out of my holster I flirted with Jeza
'Shirley, can I get a photo of you?
'That's not a real camera' she said
'And your not a real Jezebel.
You look more a Valentine'
I flicked my iPhone onto Camera+ tap tap tap (my fave app) and shot my hot little Jeza in all her glory (actually she told me she's a Dockers supporter so she can't be that dangerous). You never know she might just make my music calendar.

Q: What's the difference between a ukulele and a chainsaw?
