I find that joke extremely amusing. However, I can hear the rimshot from here.
Off-Topic: I am a drummer and I just want to let you know that the proper terminology for the "bud-dum-tish" you are thinking of is actually called a "sting". A rimshot is when you hit the rim and the head at the same time which amplifies the volume quite a bit. Just a pet-peeve of mine...
