The Cacophone: Also called the banjet. Rarely seen north of the Ozarks, the cacophone is rumored to have been invented one dark and dreary night during an absinthe-driven and probably mythical jam session featuring Miles Davis and Pete Seeger. This mint-condition example was recovered from a dumpster behind a coffeehouse in Akron Ohio, hours after an open-stage evening that resulted in three reported cases of deafness, two suicides and one premature natural childbirth.
