Lightbulb Boy and his drum

There was a small boy that banged a drum he was given for a birthday gift, all
day long and loved every moment of it. He would not be quiet, no matter what
anyone else said or did. Various attempts were made to do something about the
child before he drove everyone within hearing range nuts.

One person told the boy that he would, if he continued to make so much noise,
perforate his eardrums. This reasoning was way too advanced for the child, who
was neither a scientist nor a scholar.

A second person told him that drum beating was a sacred activity and should be
carried out only on special occasions.

The third person offered the neighbors plugs for their ears.

A fourth gave the boy a book.

A fifth gave the neighbors books that described a method of controlling anger
through biofeedback.

A sixth person gave the boy meditation exercises to make him placid and docile.

None of these attempts worked.

Eventually, an old Irish gent who occasionally played a Celtic flute in an
neigborhood group at the local Irish pub came along with an effective solution.
He looked at the situation, handed the child a borrowed hammer and screwdriver
and mused aloud, "Hmmm I wonder whatever is inside of that drum?"

Problem forever solved !
