Adam & Eve Left After Hearing Bagpipes

Amidst the ghost stories, a little humour. This joke was published in The Clarence River Advocate (NSW), Monday 20th May 1929.

LISMORE, Tuesday - It has been left to Lismore aldermans to solve the Great Garden of Eden mystery.
While the council was sitting, strains from the bagpipes floated it.

“What’s that noise?” asked Alderman R. White.

“That,” said Alderman Donald McAndrew Ross, “is the music Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden.”
Alderman White: No wonder Adam went wrong.

Alderman S. J. Hosie: That explains it. They weren’t turned out. They left.
