Tuber Tuba

Plant some potatoes inside the funnelly part of a tuba and you will grow tuba tubers, a delight to all the family for at least one or two meals a year.

An added advantage is that by putting your ear to the mouthpiece, you should be able to make out to the amplified noises of a thousand happy worms wiggling around in your compost.

Vienna Vegetable Orchestra http://www.gemueseorchester.org/
The Vegetable Orchestra performs music solely on instruments made of vegetables. Using carrot flutes, pumpkin basses, leek violins, leek-zucchini-vibrators, cucumberophones and celery bongos, the orchestra creates its own extraordinary and vegetabile sound universe [pocmloc, Nov 20 2009]

       I was expecting to blow through a potato. Should this perhaps be Tuba Tuber? (not my bone)

       [bdag] your musical potato would be a tuba tuber - the word syntax (at least in my mind) is [differentiator][object]. It's the actual tuba that I'm talking about, not the potatoes that live inside it. They would be tuba tubers.   

       If you were to put a lot of these inside a cylindrical structure, you would have a tube of tuber tubas, each containing tuba tubers.

       See and I always thought that [differentiator][object] would mean the second word was the object, the first word describing it. Sort of like the silly crayola colors of last decade. Orange-red is a red modified by orange. Red-orange is an orange modified by red. Now the colors are called Sunrise Mist or Tropical Illusion or some such.   

       Likewise I would expect that the object (Tuba in this case) would be modified by the leading word (Tuber) so that it would become, uh...   

       Bollocks, now I'm all confusled again. Maybe we'll just place the whole lot into the subway and call it the Tube's tube of Tuber Tubas.

       IF the tube of tuber tubas had two bars on it,....   

       [bdag], a tuba actually made of tubers would be silly.

       Sounds like a tubaphore (but maybe that's only a stick of wood...)
