Baby got Bagpipes

Bagpipes are unique in the musical canon. They don't fit into any other category. They aren't woodwinds, or reeded instruments, or brass, or percussion, or strings. They fit into the "Bagpipe" category. They are also plural, like pants. You have to look hard to find someone playing a single bagpipe.

I don't know why but I have never heard someone play the bagpipes badly... perhaps because I can't tell when they sound good and when they don't... lol. Actually, I'm a big fan of the bagpipes.

For some reason this reminds me of the Monty Python sketch about Blancmanges turning people into Scotsman.
