    TBQH I think Cleo would be cuter than Miss Palmer. Probably not a better lyricist, though.

    Silly rabbit. Recorders are the instruments to learn when you don’t actually want to learn to play an instrument. They don’t teach 4th graders the ukulele.

    I’m glad someone mentioned AFP because yes. GO FORTH CLEO, DO SOME RADIOHEAD COVERS

  4. Angelina says:

    AUGH CLEO you seriously annoy me sometimes

  5. Static Air says:

    It’s posts like these that remind me that there’s a little Amanda Palmer in all of us.

    Or Brian Viglione. Or both. Whatevs.

  6. Aaahahaha! I just spent like two weeks working on the Ukulele for Dummies book! You crack my shit up.

    I played the ukulele back when it was uncool to play the ukulele. I can’t say that the current wave of fad players doesn’t bug the hell outta me, but at least I have the satisfaction of knowing that I’ll be clutching my uke when it becomes uncool again!


    So… uh… anyway…

    Cleo needs to put together a soothing instrumental tribute to Puccini on the ukulele and totally blow Marlene’s mind. (I can assure you, it can be done!)

    God DAMMIT stop reading my mind.

  9. M says:

    I think if Cleo did that at a party she wouldn’t be allowed to anymore parties.

  10. Jess says:

    I’m totally with cleo, i want one. four strings man, i can deal with four strings

  11. Marj says:

    That’s why I got that fancy kazoo.

  12. Eliza Moonchild says:

    Cleo, I will wire you that money.

  13. Van says:

    I’ve been debating taking up an instrument myself. I reckon a 4 string bass would be good. All the bad assery of a guitar and it seems somewhat easy to learn how to use.

    Ditch the Ukulele, Cleo, and get a bass guitar! 😀

    I am so with you on the anti-vacant eyed cute faced youtube ukulele chicks with violently fervent fan followings.

  15. Twigs says:

    Cleo is worse than a hipster. She is either a super-hipster or desperately impersonating a hipster. I can’t tell which.

    Wait yes I can.

    Right after this comic came out, I learned that my best little freshman baby (I’m a high school junior) taught herself to play the ukelele. And guess what? IT’S SO ADORABLE OMIGOD SO CUTE. At the cast party after our musical she played while two of the best singers sung along. It was the best, cutest thing ever.

    If that doesn’t win you over to ukeleles I don’t know what will.
