That is a sequence of pitches which are an artificial construct of Western music. They have been instilled into your brain by your culture. There is nothing magical or universal about them, and they hold no other significance.

Why not 5? Why not 12? Why not 68?

Will the defendant please rise.

Simon Boyd you have been found guilty of being in possession of a Doh in Eflat with the intent of inflicting Fsharp on So, Me and La and for singing out of tune outside a public house after midnight. I hereby sentence you to spend the rest of eternity locked-up in the wrong key.

Take him down.

Didn't Schoenberg use a scale with 12 notes?

12 is a much more useful number than either 3 or 7 both of which are prime numbers and therefore anything packaged or divided into 3s or 7s is almost impossible to share. Time is based on base 12. Eggs are traditionally sold in 12s (which is odd because they don't come out of the hen in 12s). Let's ditch Simon's laws and have the law of 12 instead.

' Let's ditch Simon's laws and have the law of 12 instead. '

Quite right. There are 12 tones/semi-tones to an octave, not the 8 everybody thinks there is. That's because Simon DHB has murdered the sharps/flats and as such deserves life without parole and should be sentenced to the ultimate cruelty of listening to Des O'Connor for eternity. For a measure of leniancy, substitute Cliff Richard.

Simon,

You make a reference to "Old MacDonald's Farm"; how many notes do you believe there are in the scale which forms the basis of that noble tune?

So that's a "don't know", then.

How about "Auld Lang Syne" ?

Very sensible proposition David.

The law book for 12, states that the penalty for Simon's infringements is Hanging, the neck has to be stretched 12 octaves and has no options but Des O'Connor at full volume

Yes, but what's the definition of 'full volume'? Too many decibels and he'll go deaf and thus won't suffer the necessary punishment for all eternity. So you need to define exactly how many decibels for old Desie. Also, does he get a variety of Des songs or just the one on continuous? If the latter, I suggest the song 'Don't let the good life pass you by'!!!

To be able to do that, you'd have to be able to prove that Simon is human, and judging by most of his posts, I'd say that you'd find that quite difficult.

David Groom hi

The Law book doesn't specify decibels..just states, *increase volume* until the evil offender's face is distorted in aural agony but not deafened, and is loud enough to blot out any comfort from internal thoughts. It adds, only use very bad recordings, with lots of reverb and feedback and only one track permissable on repeat.

"Don't let the good life pass you by" sounds deliciously punishing, go for it.

Do you not think the sentence is just a bit too lenient under the circumstances?

kraka,

'Do you not think the sentence is just a bit too lenient under the circumstances? '

Personally, I'd find an endless run of Cliff songs the most torturing, but if I had to inflict him on Simon, then maybe the song 'Don't get around much anymore' would be the most appropriate and would permanently remind him of his crime of murdering those poor notes - it's them, the victims I'm thinking of, not the feelings of the criminal who abused them so badly.

I'd add these 2 laws.

1) littering is punishable by removing of both limbs upto the elbow
2) Kebabs to be made free on the N.H.S.
