Q: What’s the difference between a piano and a fish?
A: You can’t tuna(tune a) fish.
The informant recently learned the joke from one of the kids from the musical that she was in. The joke teller plays piano and is very musical. The informant found the joke amusing at first, but she said that as he kept telling it over and over it became annoying. She had heard the joke recently, but she enjoyed telling me about the teller of the joke more than the joke itself. The boy telling the joke was one of the younger members of the cast, and the informant assumes that he was trying to become part of the group though he was trying a little too hard. I think the joke is more cute than funny, and mostly because of the description of the boy that went along with it.
Annotation: The National Aquarium in DC collected jokes about fish and this one was listed on their website:
