YSaC, Vol. 1589: Bangos go to heaven, accordions go to hell.

Violin & Bango Free


I have a Violin + Bango in my garage, they are in poor condition, hence free. Come Thursday, Aug 29 they will go to instrument heaven but before that time you have the chance to give them a happy home.

Hey everyone, it’s a singalong!

There was a Sparky had an axe
And Bango was its name-O
B-A-N-G-O
B-A-N-G-O
B-A-N-G-O and Bango was its name-O!

Thanks, Camille!

    So many innocent banjos getting sent to instrument heaven, because of all the senseless violins…

    What did the accordion say to the violin?

    Squeeze her? Bango her? I barely oboe her!

    Here at YSaC I never know when I’ll be taken for a trip down Memory Lane. Today’s trip is to cartoons of my youth, which, thanks to syndication, were actually cartoons from my parents’ youth. I see this much-abused instrument and immediately think of Quick Draw McGraw’s alter-ego, El Kabong. Thanks, Hanna-Barbera, for all those hours of stupendously politically incorrect, guitar-based, animal-on-animal or animal-on-human violence. Such treasured childhood memories.

      I loved El Kabong. And I’ve just learned even more about him thanks to an almost absurdly detailed Wikipedia entry on Quick Draw McGraw.

    Sax and violins have been associated with bangos ever since Deliverents. Or was it a sitar? I can’t keep these twangy insterments strait; the only thing I can play is the stereo.

    [matte]Now, this a perfectly sensible portmandeau of “bang goes the banjo.” After all, when you use a 6-string banjo–gitjo–as a blunt strinking device, it’s clearly a git-go!!11!!

    srsly, b real ppl

    Here we have a good specimen of the bango. While they resemble their tame cousins, banjos, they are a completely different instrument. The banjo is played by plucking the strings, while on the lesser-known bango, the strings are more for decoration and the bango is played by wielding it as a club about the head and shoulders of annoying house-guests and relatives. Obviously, this one has been played at least once, but as you can see, it’s still in fine condition. I’d say that this bango will certainly live to play another day, perhaps even find a mate and rear a cacophony of tiny instruments.

        Hahaha, thanks, Ghostie. Most people tell me it’s strange inside my head, and then they ask to be let out. 😉

          Yep, Windy gave up on Facebook and started slumming on Craigslist.

          Aw, thanks, Windy! I didn’t think anyone would remember me after so long and with such a brief stay here. :}
          While I am hanging out on Craigslist these days, apartment hunting, I’d certainly hope that you wouldn’t be there, flaunting your real name at the Sparkies. I think I’ll take Rex’s advice and find you on Facebook instead. If you haven’t actually forsaken it, that is. 😉

    This is a Violin & Bango Free Zone. The unlicensed possession of a violin or bango is strictly prohibited. Remember, when Bangos are outlawed, only outlaws will have bangos. You can have my bango when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands…..or until I give it away for free.
    ……B-17……N-43…….O-68……G-57……A-29…..BANGO!!!!!!!

    p.s. Windy…honest, the lounge was in this state when I got there…….

    I once bangoed my head on a violin…

    …or rather, my sister really doesn’t handle criticism well.

    [matt]My goodness people, the only misspelled word in the ad is bango. It is just unreal how you can so easily make fun of one slip up.[/matt]

    Although, I have to admit, that is one funny looking bongo.

      Looks like it bore the brunt of some Bango Fury.

    Note: An evil super-villain has infiltrated the Command Center(tm) at YSaC and is interrupting access to the Intertubes. A new post will be up as soon as possible. Meanwhile, start thinking about your candidates for Worst of 2013!

    My vote is for Matt.
