Tootsday - Do You Kazoo?

No doubt, you have, or do. And then there's the, um, amateur version... Surely you've done the tissue on a comb, or the aluminum wrap on the empty cardboard paper roll, attached by a rubber band? If you have not, well, get up and do it right now! Get everyone around you to do the same, create a band. There aren't too many musical instruments any cheaper, whether store-bought or not.

A friend once taught me how to play "2001: A Space Odyssey" on piano and kazoo. I'll have to get that out, try it again, and share it around... Kazoo!
