A friend of mine posted this.
I found two things funny:
1). There are piles of other instruments on stage (horns, woodwinds, and even a harp), but they have all been forsaken for the banjoes.
2). There are multiple accordions onstage too, in case the band needs to go for the "nuclear option".

And then came along the 8 string banjo... no joke!

Next thing you know they will be doing them in 10 strings with the E9 tuning and playing them with a bar... in a bar...

Certainly a scarier time.

Why is there such animosity towards banjos among steel players anyway? I'm came in late and don't know.

Why shouldn't we carry our picks around in our pocket? Because if we're in an accident, the first responders will think we're banjo players...

I don't have any animosity toward banjo players at all, but then again, I've never been in a band with one...

A banjo is like a snare drum, but it's aiming right at you...

Actually, the banjo is just one of the three traditional easy target joke instruments (see below). PSG would be one too if people knew how heavy they were.

OK, here's a challenge: finish the punch line:
A banjo, an accordion and a set of bagpipes walk into a bar...

The accordion squeezed the bagpipes and blew the banjo away...

There is no punch line.
