What Mahler Symphony Did You Hear

I’ll be the first to admit this comic may not be funny, but at least I get a kick out of it. Mahler is my favorite composer and I had fun with this comic.

Actually, this comic came about because I was on the phone with my younger brother and he said he had just gone to a concert and they played a Mahler symphony but he wasn’t sure which one. After about 5 minutes of asking him a slew of questions I started laughing and said that this should be a comic. So, there.

It turned out that he had heard Symphony #1.

This is the BEST. Hilarious. Soooo true not only of Mahler, but you know with my Tone Deaf membership paaaaid up, I can say (and have) …. “I have just been to a concert and they played (Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven) but I’m not sure which one.”

Thank youuuuu!

You should probably include “did you suddenly have the urge to recite, in Shatnerian voice, the monologue ‘Space, the final frontier’?”

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I read this out loud to my wife, and with each new item, she shouted out the number before I could get there. I like Mahler, but she definitively eclipsed me.
