An acceptable banjo joke?

Thanks to Enda Donnelly of Fair City Grass, Dublin's senior bluegrass band, for drawing our attention to a banjo joke - not usually the BIB editor's favourite form of humour.

However, this is a special case. It's in the form of a cartoon (which you can see here) from the current issue of the New Yorker magazine. The artist, Matthew Diffee, also created the cover art for the latest CD by the award-winning banjoist Noam Pikelny - who appears, unidentified but recognisable, in the cartoon. And it's an accurate picture of a 5-string. Read more here.
