    If it really has that much sax and violins, maybe the rating should be changed to PG-sharp, or even MA! All the other kids saw it!

    As well as racers talking about the route they plan to take.
    Sax, violins… and course language.
    Is this a cymbal of the times?

    What a pair.

    One’s full of wind and the other’s highly strung.

    That trombone has a lot of brass, thinking it can pick better than the banjo. And it was a low blow to bring up sax and violins to a minor keyed instrument.

    The key to this cartoon is its harmony of foreground and background. Note the blend of homopunny and polyfunny between the words on the posters and the instruments.

    I could Liszt other factors, too, but what the fugue. On a scale of one to 12, this an augmented ninth.

    Scott Hiburn and his sharp staff have taken a lot of treble to conduct this opus and have not fallen flat. They deserve a rest, or even a fermata. Then, Bach to work.

    To be a little picky (though it is funny), violins aren’t woodwinds.

    Hilburn, you don’t have to B sharp, you already are. And much of the comments are clever.
