Orchestral Manoeuvres In the Dirk
We had the Battle Of The Bands recently which was probably

the Big Brother Philharmonic Orchestra.
However, they weren't let loose on real instruments,
something that would surely have resulted the most almighty
Rather, they had to use their vocal chords to emulate all
the different orchestral sounds, and also mime the actions
of their designated pretend-instruments at the same time.

The group passed the task, even though Jade's drums sounded
more like brass, Danielle's flute was more of a whistle, and
at least one unknown performer seemed to be playing the kazoo!
For their efforts, the ensemble won themselves some posh
nosh in advance of the eviction.
