Complaint Choirs

‘Tis the season for choir sings and choral sings (and acapella sing offs, whee, that was fun).

Thanks to Ryan sending me the link to Larry Ferlazzo’s blog I discovered the Helsinki Complaint Choir and got a good giggle. A quick google search discovered many more language and culture specific Complaint Choirs. (who knew so many people had issues with toilet paper?). In any event, I thought you might enjoy these. Feel free to complaint/lament/comment and add links to others as you find them.

Barbara has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it.

She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.
