Giocoso means fun, playful, hence my blog Giocosity. (OK, so it’s not really a word – I made it up, but work with me here!) It’s meant to be fun! And well – since I’m prone to sarcasm and good humor (not always in that order) I like to publish things that make me laugh.
Here are some posts where I’ve collected some funny jokes, pictures, puns, what have you. Sure, some of these are only going to be understood by musicians, but they can be a quirky bunch. I say we cut them some slack since they put on some great music for the rest of us!
Oh – and here’s a good collection of musical jokes I found on Buzzfeed. Yes. You’ll laugh!
