I’m glad someone's taking the tuba menace seriously.
Musical instruments must not be perverted into weapons of mass destruction. I’m sure our leftist educators will be on this in no time:
One little boy, 5 years old, wet his pants during the two-hour interrogation after he brought an orange-tipped cowboy-style cap gun on the school bus.
Because, you know, they’re doing it for the children.

You just couldn't do that with a violin (which I played at school instead of the tuba, sadly).

Clearly the tuba’s where it’s at.
In fact, isn’t the tuba a key component of the cavernous BWAAAHHP noise that now seems to be used in every other film trailer?

And there’s this rather distressed rendition of Blue Monday played on a tuba.

When tubas are outlawed, only outlaws will have tubas.
