anyone else laugh when they read these things?

whenever i read threads where people need help fixing or mounting the nut on a guitar/several guitars, i tend to snicker and giggle whenever people write something like 创You need to use sandpaper when removing your nuts创...

am i the only one? :P i feel a little british when i laugh at these things...

also, 创Next, you need to tighten the clamps on your nuts创

these aren磘 direct quotes, i磎 quoting out of memory... that last one made me giggle out loud too :P

You are not the only one believe me!!! If I recall correctly there was a thread titled "Help my nuts are rusting"

Re: anyone else laugh when they read these things?

There are a ridiculous amount of double entendres stemming from discussion of guitars... g-strings, nuts, action- just to name a few off the top of my head.

Re: anyone else laugh when they read these things?

I only have one question:
If I try to bend my G-string, will my nut slip?
I've heard it's a possibility...

"Help, my G string is too low!"

"Sounds like the rod needs a little relief"...

'I was at a gig in front of 100 people and my G string snapped'

It's not funny anymore.
