Designed to be funny, here is a traditional rag that has been distorted by humorous polytonal effects which makes for a lot of fun for everybody. Despite its rhythmic challenges, it's not hard to play - very idiomatic, smooth hand shifts, and doesn't require a large hand. Because the ensemble might be demanding, this will appeal to your more adventurous teen-aged students. You will hear raucous applause at the end of this piece!
