An orchestra consists of a large group of musicians who hold, grasp, fondle, manipulate, caress, blow, or envelop various musical instruments. Musicians are people who think that ink printed on paper is music. These musicians are led by a conductor, who is afterwards praised for the awful sounds produced by the orchestra. Note that musicians may never be praised for their work, which in most cases is no big loss.

History[edit]

The first orchestra was created by Oscar Wilde around 1200 A.D. Even though he found the sound of the orchestra a lot worse than that of the Big Bang, he was attracted to the sounds of the saxophone. Later on, he was the first human saxophonist, proved to be 'too awesome' to remain in the orchestra, and was expelled. The orchestra soon feel into disrepair and was forgotten.

The orchestra was later re-invented by Satan, around the 17th century. He managed to construct an orchestra out of real people rather than musicians, which resulted in an improved sound over that of the first orchestra created by Wilde.

The first orchestral performance was rank enough that a virulent hate spread around the Earth for the entity, and all members of Satan's orchestra were, in a goof up of immense proportions, sent to heaven. Satan then retreated to his domain to plot evil plans involving turpentine. Musicians from around the universe came to Earth to continue Satan's venture, and the form exists exactly the same today.

Instruments and positions[edit]

The instruments of the orchestras are positioned opposite to a bull (i.e. Horns at the back; asshole at the front).

Conductor: The leader of the orchestra with the purpose of frightening the musicians into playing correctly. (see more below)

First Violins: These squeaky and annoying instruments are probably, ironically, the most important in the orchestra. They are cacophonous concoctions originally invented as torture devices in the medieval ages. The first violins usually have the easiest parts in the whole orchestra as it is common knowledge that violin players are typically stupid and can't read half of their rhythms.

Second Violins: These instruments are even more annoying than the first violins. Due to the lack of ability second violin players have, their parts are generally silent. To escape total humiliation, second violins usually try to imitate the first violins until the conductor signals them to shut up.

Violas: These instruments have the potential to be tolerable, as they cannot play as annoyingly high or low. Unfortunately, this section usually only attracts people with no talent and is rarely ever heard.

Cellos: The second largest instruments out of the strings. Cellos play everything that isn't on a sheet of music and will forget what they learned after just ten minutes of practicing.

Basses: These instruments are possibly the only "bearable" instruments in the whole orchestra because they can barely be heard. These instruments usually resonate in lower frequencies and are inaudible to the naked ear. Oh wait, they're just not playing.

Harps: These torture devices of sadistic doom were integrated into orchestras by a pussy-whipped Claudio Monteverdi. They whip out the occasional glissandi to look busy while they seduce all the other players section by section, dying their C strings with the blood of their prey.

The claves, one of the most difficult instruments in all of the orchestra

Flutes: Originally created by isolated monks in caverns with absolutely nothing to do, flutes can play virtually any note (out of tune). Composers generally write the flute parts knowing that they will not be heard from the audience, so all flautists mainly improvise loud death metal instead. Flutes can also be altered to be used as "blow darts". For example, in the Presidential Ball of 1969, the minister of education was assassinated by a disgruntled flute player. The musician was later executed by viola. Flutists are prone to losing their flutes, probably due to pranks carried out by other musicians.

Oboes, Bassoons, and Clarinets: Usually located in the center of the orchestra where they feel safe, away from the bows, strings, and other implements of destruction that are quite harmful when angered. They are not all that important and are impossible to hear in the audience.

French Horns: The horn is what Satan would look like if he were made of brass tubes and all coiled up.

Trumpets: A very simple instrument that can play 3 major notes in key and two flat notes; played in a similar fashion to the timpani.

Trombones and Tuba: These people play mostly counter-tunes or semibreves. They get the easy stuff compared to trumpets, but they still complain.

Concussion: Percussion: These instruments are probably the most difficult and skill-requiring instruments in all of the orchestra, including the timpani, snare drum, bass drum, tenor drums, claves, congas, triangle, tambourine, maracas, agogo, castanets, güiro, ratchet, marimba, xylophone, djembe, vibraphone, tubular bells, wood blocks, temple blocks, bongos, gong, crash cymbals, suspended cymbal, cowbell, theremin, strangled cat, whip, flexatone, mark tree, and the world renowned glockenspiel. Some percussion instruments even have pitches! Strangely, these are known as pitched-percussion instruments. The timpani is part of the pitched-percussion instrument family. One type of cymbal uses a kitten hide covered with dehydrated horse-fat.

Some Guy Named Moe--he sits behind the bandstand, picking his teeth, & wishing they'd give him back his harmonica, THEN he'd show em!

Famous Orchestras[edit]

There is currently only one famous orchestra, because nobody but Satan seemed to be willing enough to take the risk of creating their own. When asked, Satan commented that he wouldn't be launching more than one orchestra in his lifetime, and to please stop calling him, we've been broken up for six eons now, go back to Kansas, slut.

The orchestra in question is the London Symphony Orchestra, which is also the author of the Super Mario Brothers theme song. The titles of their other songs can be discovered by playing said track backwards, while huffing kittens. If done wrong, however, your soul belongs to him.

The following groups have been rumored to be orchestra, only instead found out to be chickens in disguise.

The Conductor[edit]

The conductor is the single most important part of the orchestra. With every movement of his magical baton and various parts of his anatomy, he controls the enslaved minds of up to approximately 47,000 individual instrument players with utmost despotism.

The Conductor's Arsenal of Fear and Terror[edit]

  • Magical baton: repetitive motion keeps the orchestra members in a deep hypnotic state
  • Flailing arms: used to indicate selected sections of the orchestra to blow/bow/pound/thrust harder
  • Gaping mouth: controls the pressure and wind speed of the woodwind and kazoo sections
  • Flaring nostrils: fine-tunes the timbre of the brass section
  • Flapping ears: sets and/or varies string tension in the string section
  • Waggling eyebrows: indicates key in which the composition is to be played as well as allowing them to make flirty gestures at the female viola people
  • Stomping feet: changes percussion intensity and allows them to satisfy their love of dinosaurs

The conductor is the person who holds the entire orchestra together. By spitting and slobbering over the first several rows of violinists he can keep the violinists thirst levels down for several days before dying of thirst himself, as well as supplying fluids to the front row violinists on long concertos. He also has several other functions within an orchestra:
