There seem to have been some knee jerk reactions of late to a few of my annotations on the Bakery, so I thought, why not set these to music?... and what could be more appropriate for this purpose than a knee jerk musical Instrument?

Enter the Kneejerk Piano.

The human knee is perfectly capable of acting as a replacement for the conventional hammer/striker apparatus that acts as the interface between the keys and the strings on a piano.

There are no particular advantages to the Kneejerk Piano. I just think it would be a worthwhile spectacle to witness a serious musician playing a particularly challenging piece as an array of hammers struck at the bare knees along a line of seated figures - each blow eliciting a note as the jerking feet arced up in turn to strike against the stretched strings.

       Freedom ! I'll tell you about freedom - I used to be a happy hamster, devoid of all freedom, merrily running on my wheel, but then I escaped -
