Always the naysayers. Pete had dedicated his life to being the greatest rock sensation since The King himself. His latest project was to rig a tuba with explosives to be ignited when he finished the climactic bars of The Star Spangled Banner at the town's little league championship game.
But since the government outlawed tubas three months ago, his only option was to try to make his explosive charges fit into the smaller, inferior instrument. Big Mistake.
Maybe I should give up on Polka Metal altogether, Pete mumbled.
