Wow. He sure did orchestrate a lot of crimes.
At least they weren't violint crimes.
I wonder if he'll get time off for good conduct.
Low-class(ical) criminal... Siphoning when he should have been symphonying.
Yet another non-profit with weak financial controls.
I hope he wasn't in concert with others.
I hope he watches his back. Prison shanks are known to B sharp.
Wow! This string of puns is a breath of fresh air from the usual sour comments criticizing everything in Palo Alto that I see on Town Square. Love 'em!
Too bad this story had to enter on a sad note.
Too bad his career is ending on such a minor key.
Way too often, people are too trusting. When big money's involved, there have to be frequent audits by an outside party. Carlton will have to face the music. Or is it pay the piper?
I think he should have to "face the music"; March to the Scaffold from Symphonie Fantastíque, to be specific. Unfortunately, there is not enough funding left to pay the orchestra.
What is the scale for pipers? The Berlioz low brass parts wouldn't sound right being played on pipes, though. :-/
Grand theft alto.
He played them like a violin..or is it a fiddle?
He should be drummed out of the symphony forever.
These are truly awful puns.
He must B-flat broke
How's he gonna drum up lawyer fees? He'll probably need to piccolo cost attorney.
We have a winner!
Clearly, this thread has struck a chord with the readers.
Apparently, fiddling around with the funds wasn't his forte. Wait until the jury hears his attorney's glockenspiel! Going to jail with all of this fanfare is enough to put him in a fugue state and will no doubt result in a real etude adjustment. [Portion removed.]
Oboe-y. Tuba'd. Bassoon he'll be out. No symphony from me. A cymbal of all that can go wrong.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
