We were joking about at meal time and definitions for GAS came up.

Everyone knows the standard Gear Acquisition Syndrome, but how about:

Grub Acquisition Syndrome (teenage boy, always hungry)
Gut Acquisition Syndrome (for someone who eats/drinks too much)
Gut Augmentation Syndrome (for someone who eats drinks even more)

and for my wife:

Guitar Acquisition Syndrome (If you thought saxes were expensive, think again :w00t: )

And for the boys:
Girlfriend Acquisition Syndrome

And for the girls(yes, you saw it coming, I know):
Guy Acquisition Syndrome
(hope my wife doesn't catch this one as well, once I've got her guitar for her)


In short, the family is having a GAS attack of monumental proportions.

Grave, gonad, gagga, googoo, gravid, gradely, geriatric all start with G....

I guess these definitions could form a pseudo-mathematical progression. Complete with circular references. Something like the Cycle of GASs.

GA Syndrome.

AKA "Sol La Syndrome": just two notes, but with feeling

For poorer people there is "Graftonite Acquisition Syndrome" - starting at a B5 and ending up either on a C9 or even an M11.

For people with senseless amounts of cash, and too many saxes, crooks etc. There is "Guardala Acquisition Syndrome", where people are eventually playing a Guardala mouthpiece on Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone, all bought for in excess of £600+.

"Grimly annoying sounds"
"Gurgling 'A'... on my... soprano"
"Garlic & Snails"

Which must be GAS Mark 2 - when mouthpieces, ligatures, reeds, moputhpiece patches, reed boxes and similar have been exhausted (In GAS Mark 1) and the need is to step up...................

So does the ventriloquist's favourite phrase "Gottle of Geer."

Don't worry Kev, we all found your contribution very amusing, didn't we guys?

I said "Didn't we, guys?"

I said "Didn't we guys?"

I said "Didn't we guys?"
