	You are displaying a profound ignorance of what a dpl actually

Once there was this conductor see, who had a bass problem.  You see,
during a portion of Beethovan's Ninth Symphony in which there are no
bass violin parts, one of the bassists always passed a bottle of
scotch around.  So, to remind himself that the basses usually required
an extra cue towards the end of the symphony, the conductor would
fasten a piece of string around the page of the score before the bass
cue.  As the basses grew more and more inebriated, two of them fell
asleep.  The conductor grew quite nervous (he was very concerned about
the pitch) because it was the bottom of the ninth; the score was tied
and the basses were loaded with two out.
