In musician circles, the banjo takes a lot of good-natured abuse, right along with accordion players and drummers.
Luckily, the banjo player in Petaluma Pete’s video has a sense of humor, but even HE would not take his banjo with him when he attended the Berklee College of Music, for fear of having to endure jokes like those listed below, which happen to be my favorite. 🙂

This Gary Larson cartoon says it all.
