There is a long back story to this one so bear with me. (artistic licence invoked!)
This partly submerged ukulele was found in the shallows of Loch Ness. After cleaning the barnacles off the label inside was deciphered to read “This Ukulele belongs to Saint Columba, 565AD, The Saint of Showmanship.”
Upon much research it was discovered that the first reported sighting of the Loch Ness Monster was indeed by Saint Columba in the mid sixth century. He was on his way to set up a monastery in the Scottish highlands somewhere when on his travels he and his followers happened upon a funeral at the edge of a great lake. Inquiring as to what happened the villagers told him that a monster in the lake had killed the man. Being a man of faith Saint Columba took it upon himself to face down this so called monster and expunge it from the depths of this placid and tranquil water feature. So he bravely sent one of his loyal followers into the water to attract the beast. On a boat he followed, armed with his bible. After a bit of flailing around by the disciple sure enough a monster emerged. Saint Columba leapt to the bow of the boat, bible held high and loudly proclaimed something along the lines of “Go no further. Do not touch the man. Go back at once.” Sure enough the creature stopped as if it had been “pulled back with ropes” and fled. It was considered a miracle by his followers and the local villagers alike. The brave Saint Columba went down in the books of history as a hero and monster vanquisher. Since then the monster of the lake has been spotted numerous times over the past 1500 years or so, always reporting seeing a couple of humps with a long protruding neck. Since this ukulele has been removed from the lake no more sightings have been reported. Coincidence or not? Could it have been the Saint of Showmanships ukulele all along? We are left to wonder!
