Once there was a second-rate orchestra, led by a very bad conductor.
Also in the orchestra was this percussionist on the cymbals who never
banged them at the correct time.
So the conductor said, “If you don’t get it right this time … I WILL
When the time came for the percussionist to get it right, he didn’t. So,
the conductor pulled out a pistol and shot him dead.
Of course, the police came, arrested him and eventually the conductor
ended up on death row. The day came when he was sent to the electric chair.
As the crowd watched, the executioner flipped the switch … but nothing
happened. Everyone wondered what had gone wrong.
But the conductor knew. Saddened by all that had taken place, he said,
“I never was a good … conductor!”
