"This sandwich on a platter with a similar but much smaller sandwich shaped like a drum on the same platter... Two little toothpick signs protrude from each: #1 On piano "What's the difference between a piano and a fish?" #2 on piano ""You can't tuna fish!" #3 on drums "BA dum dum"

And that's how you win the annual band potluck lol"

"This was so much fun to take to my daughter's piano recital many years ago. I do it each year, even though now she plays the flute. We are going to her adult recitals now."
