You know what industry hasn't been hit by the recession?
The bagpipe industry.
I see all kinds of homeless guys in the street playing guitar, saxophone, bongos, trumpets - if I didn't know better, I'd say the Mighty Mighty Bosstones are roaming the streets of Cleveland begging for change.
But I never see bagpipe players.
Probably because they're too busy being baller.
Granted, the ceiling of a bagpipe player is pretty low - there is no bagpipe version of Kenny G. And bagpipes aren't going to get as many chicks as, say, a keytar player, but in these tough economic times, it pays the bills.
And that's more than the Mighty Mighty Bosstones can say right now.
