I don't know if there is a place for something like this but I thought I'd put one up. Basically this topic is to discuss experiences in which people couldn't identify your instrument. For example I went to Laughland on a vacation and I brought a songbird wing ocarina. I was looking through a fancy car show when the curator asks me what I had around my neck. I told him that it was an instrument called an Ocarina and he replied that he thought it was a crack pipe. :rofl:

Behold! 'Tis the flute of my people!

Oh boy, I've got one... When I put up a photo of me holding up my Menaglio Do 3, the first comment I got asked what was up with the mutant carrot. XD Other than that, people have mostly said things like "fife", "piccolo", "Zelda thing"... Those I can deal with, usually.

Can't settle on an avatar pic.
I was dressed as Sheik at a Halloween party at my church a few years ago, and pulled a plastic oc out of my collar (didn't have any pockets ;) ), and a guy was like "Holy crap, did you just pull a fish out of your shirt?!" :P

A lady at my church thought my dolce DAC was pan pipes :facehoof:

Let's see... 1980-90's dance name: Check, Drug using device: Check, That thing from Zelda: Check, Pokeflute: :facepalm: Check. That's about it except when I showed a pic of one, Kalasinar 12AC, to a group of people I played an online game with they thought it was an "adult toy" -_-

Yep, I had my plastic oc on me during an anime convention. When I was walking into a concert there, they were making people empty their pockets and walk through metal detectors. Upon finding my oc, they were about to confiscate it thinking it was a bong of some sort, and I had to play a few songs for them to believe otherwise, lol.

*psst* just to fix a bit lord seg, Kalasinar doesn't make 12 hole AC's :3
She'll be selling 11 holes when they're released.
As you were ;)

I once heard someone mention being asked if his Muse was a wooden banana. Other than that, no, except my dad can't pronounce it and just calls it a toot toot.

I read somewhere on TON, they had bought an ocarina from someone, and from the smell they could easily tell it WAS used as a bong.

Another incident happened in San Francisco. I was visiting a Maritime Museum's gift shop. There were displays of submarines models and other things. I get pulled over by a veteran who asks what I was doing. I had no clue what he was talking about. He points to my pocket which had the top of an OOT sticking out. I pulled out my OOT and he asks if I thought I could get away with stealing a submarine. I had to play a few songs before finally convincing the guy it wasn't a submarine and I wasn't stealing it.

haha, one of my friend's though my pendant oc (which I was wearing at the time) was some sort of adult toy too. I then had to point out why on earth I would go galavanting about with something like that dangling from my neck.

My ocarina has no hair...either

People often tell me that my Gosselink BC looks like a shell. I've probably had 15 people ask me if I was playing a seashell.

Everytime I'm asked what the LoZ ocarina around my neck is, I respond that it is an ocarina.
Everytime I say that, the responce is invariably "the dance?"

I have most definitely been asked if it was a bong, it is has been called "The-Dance-that-must-not-be-named".
