Musical Octopus

A guy walks into a bar with an octopus.  He sits the octopus down on a 
stool and tells everyone in the bar that this is a very talented octopus. 
He can play any musical instrument in the world.  He hears everyone in 
the crowd laughing at him, calling him an idiot, etc.  So he says that he 
will wager $50 to anyone who has an instrument that the octopus can't play.  
A guy walks up with a guitar and sits it beside the octopus.  The octopus
starts playing better than Jimi Hendrix.  So the man pays his $50.  Another 
guy walks up with a trumpet.  The octopus plays the trumpet better than 
Dizzie Gillespie.  So the man pays his $50 too.  A third guy walks up with 
bagpipes.  He sits them down and the octopus fumbles with it for a minute 
and sits it down with a confused look.

"Ha!" the man says.  "Can't you play it?"

The octopus looks up at the man and says, "Play it?  I'm gonna screw it as
soon as I figure out how to get its pajamas off."
