    Bagpipers are like trolls. Best not to feed 'em.

    Sometimes bribes require explicit instructions for the particularly clueless.

    Sounds like you should be glad you don't live in Edinburgh.

      Our dog Berkeley likes to sing along (i.e. howl) to fire engines and bagpipers. I have occasionally pondered taking the train from Glasgow to Edinburgh and walking him up and down Princes Street and the Royal Mile.

    Why would you want the guy with the bagpipes to stop?

  5. The bagpiper on Market St. today, or is there another? I hope it's not the beginning of an invasion force.

    two buildings over, 4 stories up, and around the corner, I could still here that fucker all the way through a long, long meeting.

    I was reminded of "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe."

    A thin whine filled the air. It whirled and howled through the trees upsetting the squirrels. A few birds flew off in disgust. The noise danced and skittered round the clearing. It whooped, it rasped, it generally offended.
    The talking gradually died away and the clearing fell silent, except for the bagpiper who seemed to be in some wild and uninhabitable musical world of his own. A few of those in his immediate vicinity threw some leaves to him. If there was any reason for this then it escaped Ford Prefect for the moment.

    Riddle: If you throw a bagpipe, a banjo, and an accordion off the top of the Empire State Building at exactly the same moment, which of the instruments will hit the ground first?

    Answer: WHO CARES! DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!
