A tourist in Vienna goes through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears
some music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source.

He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a
headstone that reads: "Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827."

Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony, and it is being
played backward! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend
to return with him. By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music
has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous
piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a
music scholar.

When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again
backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the
reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the

By the next day the word has spread and a throng has gathered around the
grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played

Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the
group asks him if he has an explanation for the music.

"Don't you get it?" the caretaker says incredulously. "He's decomposing."

One of the regular foursome was sick, so a new member named George filled in. He was very good and pleasant company so they asked him to join them again the following Sunday. "9.30 okay?"

George said, "Fine, but I may be about ten minutes late. Wait for me."

The following Sunday George showed up right on time. Not only that he played left-handed and beat them.

They agreed to meet the following Sunday at 9.30. George again said, "Okay, but I may be about ten minutes late. Wait for me."

The next Sunday there was George, punctual to the dot. This time he played right-handed and beat them again. "Okay, for 9.30 next Sunday?" one of the foursome asked.
George said, "Sure if I’m ten minutes late…"

Another golfer jumped in. "Wait a minute… You always say you may be ten minutes late. But you’re always right on time and you beat us whether you play right or left handed."

George said, "Well, that’s true – I’m superstitious. If I wake up and my wife is sleeping on her right side, I play right-handed. If she’s sleeping on her left side, I play left-handed."

"What if she’s lying on her back?"

George said, "That’s when I’m ten minutes late!"
