It's not technically playing the bagpipes that can kill you as much as the listeners.

Maybe if bagpipers used weed they would be less motivated to play. Or they would add the Greatful Dead song list to their shtick.

Well, that's a valid reason not to take requests.

Except to please stop.

Does flame-sterilizing the pipes help?

huh, i don't have to read the article to see that Dave spelled kilt wrong

sheesh, where the hell is judi ?

A gentleman is a man who can play the bagpipes but doesn't.

Philosophical question: If a piper plays his bagpipes in the forest, a hundred miles from any other human, does everyone still hate him?

" Playing the bagpipes could kill you "

...as can listening to bag pipes.
