Accordions are dangerous for both men and women, but in different areas. This is proof, I think, that God didn't intend us to be naked.

Or proof that God didn't want us to play accordions.

As they say: a gentleman is someone who can play accordion... ...but chooses not to. (Mine's in the loft. Never played cymbals - naked or otherwise)
