“Marching bands are actually homeless orchestras. Tragic, really”

A jocular definition of a marching band was posted on Twitter by Tim Siedell on November 12, 2009:

“Marching bands are actually homeless orchestras. Tragic, really.”

Marching Bands Are Just Homeless Orchestras, Half-Empty Thoughts Vol. 1 (2010) is a book that Seidell published the following year.’

BadBanana’s book: Marching Bands are Just Homeless Orchestras
by Joe Hage November 9, 2010
I was a @badbanana fan back when we was still ripe. What? Wait. No. That didn’t come out right.

That wasn’t so funny.

But Tim Siedell, known to more than 400,000 Twitter followers as “Bad Banana,” genuinely and consistently is. Tim won me over in 2008 with his witticisms including (my favorite), “India, your food is delicious. Congratulations.” I’m genuinely honored Tim’s giving us the scoop on his new book “Marching Bands are Just Homeless Orchestras,” due out this November.

14 December 2010, Lincoln (NE) Journal Star. “The Funniest Guy in #LNK: Being BadBanana: A Q & A with Lincoln’s wittiest tweeter” by Micah Mertes, pg. C1:
His witticisms have been featured on NPR, the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. He’s been named one of the Top 10 funniest people on Twitter by Maxim, MSNBC and Mashable. He’s also a contributor to Funny or Die and Huffington Post.

And he just wrote his first book, “Marching Bands Are Just Homeless Orchestras: Half-Empty Thoughts, Volume 1,” a collection of quips from Siedell’s slightly warped mind.
