That’s not a banjo. This is a banjo…

A base banjo, to be precise.

It is huge. Huge enough to hide under during an airstrike.

““It was in a banjo band that went to the First World War to entertain the troops.

“The bloke who was playing it was called Wally Ogden and it actually got buried after the bunker got hit by a shell and they thought the banjo was lost.

“When they dug it all out again they found the tunnel was still there and they managed to get the banjo back, so it’s been through the wars.””

That makes my pun make sense now (I didn’t post the quote first time around…).

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

    1. Although it’s a pun. I did forget to copy the paragraph from the story though…

      ““It was in a banjo band that went to the First World War to entertain the troops.
