Marakanetz, I'm the friend of a violin virtuoso, so I know: Strad made VIOLAS for dumbs, the violin players were too smart for that and used to kick in his drums, whenever he tried to sell them a violin.

Marakanetz, no, behind my attempt to be funny is the "war" in the string section of the orchestra, with violinists thinking themselves better than viola players. Look into the internet under viola player jokes and you'll find out. Most unfair of course, but my post was alluding to that sort of banter. Sorry to have caused a misunderstanding.
What's the difference between a violin and a viola?
-The viola burns longer
How can one tell that the floor of the stage is level?
-The violists are drooling out of both sides of their mouths
A violist, on her way to a rehearsal, stops at the 7-11 to buy a cup of coffee. Thinking that it is safe to leave her instrument on the back seat of her car for two minutes, she locks the car and runs in for her coffee. Coffee in hand, she returns to her car, and to her dismay sees that one of the car's windows has been smashed. On the back seat of the car she sees... two violas.
