I had previously observed that after doing a search I would see another forum's name appear for no reason (watchuseek, which I had visited in the past). I assumed it was some software thing due to different fora using similar coding and somehow things getting mixed up or some such thing.

Today on the Sotw main forum home page I saw this:

Sax on the Web Forum
Welcome to the Gallbladder Support Forums


I've never been to any gallbladder support forum.

Weird.

Well now you have. We can help you.

First you need the right ligature for your gallbladder. This is crucial, it must cost more than $120 and be cryogenically treated.

Come to that, you must get your gallbladder itself cryogenicalluy treated. You can easily do this yourself if you have a fridge/freezer.

Next check that your gallbladder has not been relacquered. If it has, there is no hope and you might as well chuck it in the bin and buy an original lacquer vintage gallbladder.

Finally it is very important to make sure your gallstones are aligned correctly to the acoustic nodes.

Nononono. Use the gallbladder shims.
Swedging BAD. shims GOOD.

And of course, they need to be the correct vintage.

The stints have not been the same since they ran out of the brass artillery shell casings ...

I don't have a gall bladder, and I can't afford to buy one, let alone have it installed.

BTW, cholecystectomy is a great Scrabble word.

I have a vintage gallbladder.
Sometimes there is a warble in my low notes.
Should I drop a stone in there or P-lig it?
Or maybe lay off the Brussels sprouts...

Aahh Lee, that's just too boring! Luckily we still have the tooltip to remind us of gallstones, polyps and more.

Yes, you only fixed 1 of 2 places. You still see it when you rest your cursor over the saxphone with spectacles logo at the top left of the screen.

It took a lot of gall for some of you to make some of those responses. Some were so funny though that I nearly emptied my bladder laughing so hard.

It has, however, been quite a galling experience.

Still, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw gallstones.
