I’m trying to imagine what that would taste like. Yeow.
Drums and fifes, yes, and buglers to relay orders, but probably not bands. In the 19th C., picknickers (and probably bands) would sometimes come out to watch the battles.
In WWII, my father’s army band played near the front, and separately fought on the front. He told me of once playing the 1812 Overture, using BARs under the bandstand for the cannons. A lot of the audience/soldiers had never heard it before, and when the guns went off, they sprinted for their battle stations.
Mountain hikers know that you lose 4-5 degrees for every 1000 feet of elevation rise. Even on a warm day at sea level it can get pretty darn chilly up there.
There are some fascinating old instruments on that RobbStewart site, but the only backward-facing bells I see are on his replica-schreiber-cornets page. I can only guess that that was to facilitate holding it under your arm, while galloping on horseback, when your intended audience was mostly riding behind you. Thanks for the link.
superficial resemblance to the horn? Okay, both have bells and valves, like most brass instruments. Only French horns have the bell facing behind the player, though.
He might as well have called it a clarinet or a drum.
If they’re about to retire it for the winter, then it must already be empty of any ice cream.
There are some options out there. Colt McCoy would be a big improvement, and I suspect Colin Kaepernick would be, too.
Tell her how much you miss her, fool!
Of course, you know he drew this strip well before Monday’s game.
