  A guy walks into a bar with an octopus on his shoulder. 
  The bartender says to him, "You can't bring that in here!"
  The guy says "Why not? He's a pet. Plus I'll bet you a drink
he can play any instrument in here."
  The bartender says "okay, here's a trombone, I'll bet a drink
he can't play it."
  The octopus picks it up and starts playing a tune.
  The bartender is a little upset and pulls out a clarinet and 
says, "I bet another drink he can't play this."
  The guy says okay and the octopus picks up the clarinet and 
starts playing away on it.
  By now the bartender is really upset. He's had to give the 
guy 2 free drinks already. Then he remembers he has an old set 
of bagpipes in the back.
  He tells the guy, "I'll bet you one more drink he can't play 
something else I have," and throws out the bagpipes. 
  The octopus takes one look at the set of bagpipes and starts
swarming all over it, pulling on the pipes and squeezing the bag. 
  The bartender laughs and says, "I guess I win."
  The guy says, "just give him a minute. As soon as he realizes 
he can't screw it... he'll play it." 

Origin of Bagpipes

  Long ago, the Scots devised a fearsome battle tactic. As the
Scots neared their enemies, they would take cats, swing them 
round and round above their heads. Then the cats would be sent 
sailing through the air and land, clawing and biting, among 
the Scot's foes. This was very effective. Word got out of this 
fearsome stratagem, and soon just the sound of the cats, howling 
and screaming as they were whirled over the heads of the Scotsmen, 
was enough to send even battle-hardened foes into full retreat.
  But the Scots began to run out of cats.
  So they invented the Scottish bagpipe as a substitute.
  And now you know... ...the rest of the story.

  There was a young Scottish boy called Angus who decided to 
try life in Australia. He found an apartment in a small block 
and settled in.
  After a week or two, his mother called from Aberdeen to see 
how her son was doing in his new life.
  "I'm fine," Angus said. "But there are some really strange
people living in these apartments. One woman cried all day 
long, another lies on her floor moaning, and there is a guy 
next door to me who bangs his head on the wall all the time."
  "Well, ma laddie," says his mother, "I suggest you don't
 associate with people like that."
   "Oh," says Angus, "I don't, Mam, I don't. No, I just stay 
 inside my apartment all day and night, playing my bagpipes."
