Another Guy's Embarrassing Piano Story
By Peter Neilson

A friend told me that he went to move his wife's old upright piano, by
loading it in his pickup truck.  He got it into the truck okay, and
then thought about tying it down.  He said to himself, "That sucker's
so heavy it's not going anywhere," and didn't tie it at all.

At the first corner the piano (being top-heavy) jumped out of the
truck.  My friend said to me, "You never heard such a noise in your
whole life."

I remarked, "You don't know how lucky you were."

"Lucky?" he said, "That was my wife's piano -- I lived in the doghouse
for a month!"

I told him, "You didn't have a friend in back with the piano, trying to
'steady' it.  It would have lifted him out and landed on top of him."

"Omygod," he exclaimed!
