The Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boys….
Blog Guy, somebody told me about a very unusual military orchestra the Russians have, but I don’t believe them. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Yes, probably the Bashful Brass, a group made up entirely of undercover secret agents, so they can’t let their faces be seen when they perform.
But that’s amazing! How do they keep their identities secret?
As you can see, they shuffle around, use their saucer caps, look down a lot and basically act very shy.
Really? Do you know anything else about them?
Well, as a journalist I interviewed their conductor. I said, “Maestro, I think you’ve got the best undercover secret agent group in the world.”
I get it, soften him up with flattery. What did the maestro say to that?
“Well, I hate to blow my own horn….”
