Benjamin Franklin's Water Organ
By Hans van Oost

Hello, you all out there!!

>  Benjamin Franklin's Organ !!

Don't change that title!  It has been a known fact for years that grown
people all over the world cannot live twenty minutes without thinking
about sex.  If you are working or writing about organs, with all them
pipes and holes, it is sheer impossibility!

We are constantly joking when we are working at an organ.  I have seen
signs in English churches that threaten people with fines if they are
caught "tampering with the organ"......

By-the-way: has Mr. Franklin ever been a U.S President?  (-;


Hans van Oost

 [ Fortunately for Ben, no -- so he didn't have to endure any sort of
 [ "Organ-gate" scandal, either!  -- Robbie
