Mechanical Music Instruments Can Perform Parody
By Harald Mueller

In reply to Ingmar Krause's statement

> > No law in the world can stop you from doing parody.

(which I thought was not confined to music)

I wrote

> ...As far as I know, you cannot even parody the Stars
> and Stripes in the U.S.A.

Robbie changed this to

> ...As far as I know, you cannot even parody "The Stars
> and Stripes Forever" in the U.S.A.

> [ The U.S. government did not stop citizens when they recently
> [ burned U.S. flags in protest, ...

However, I _meant_ the flag!   And am glad to hear that expressing
one's feelings also against this item is at least tolerated.  I would
never have wanted to imply that the US government would ban a parody
of some music!

 [ Oh, dear!  I apologize that I assumed music instead of the
 [ name of the U.S. flag.  (Is there a stirring march named
 [ "Union Jack"?)  -- Robbie
