A banjo player accused of assaulting another man with his instrument will get to keep pickin' while awaiting his trial. Joseph Stancato, 33, of Denver faces second-degree assault charges after allegedly hitting another man upside the head with his banjo on New Year's Eve. Authorities said Stancato got into an argument with two men at a bus stop. ...link (http://www.boston.com/news/odd/articles/2010/01/05/accused_banjo_beater_can_keep_pickin_for_now/)

Someone's stringing this out, this case should be over by now.

Maybe they offered him a deal but there were strings attached....

How do you tell if a banjo player is at the door?

First, he can't find the key, then the knocking speeds up, then he can't figure out how to come in.

What's the difference between a banjo player and a savings bond?

Eventually the savings bond matures and makes money.

The article states that a banjo is a deadly weapon and that the perp could face prison time. Unbelievable.

I guess they made a note of his bad behaviour and want him off the streets for a while.

He hit the guy in the head with his banjo....Earl wouldn't have done it that way.

He would have put a boot up his ass.
