Please plan your activities accordingly, especially if you’re planning anything formal tonight. Remember, kazoos fit nicely into even the smallest purse or tux pocket, and nothing finishes off a romantic evening better (or more completely) than a kazoo.
This is also as good a time as any to mention the movement at kazooamerica.org to make the kazoo America’s National Instrument. This plucky music maker is an ideal choice for our national musical mascot. After all, it’s so democratic: anyone can play a kazoo successfully (for a given definition of “successfully”).
The movement has already made great strides with appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Fox and Friends, CBS Sunday Morning News, Martha Stewart, and has won approval from bemused and often bewildered politicians across the country.
So join the hordes of buzzing musicians and help us fight to honor this lowly instrumentby raising it to the level of national recognition. Wouldn’t you love to see President Obama playing the kazoo, possibly leading Congress into a rousing rendition of “America the Beautiful”? Some days, I can think of little else.
