Are you having strange symptoms? Do you find yourself wanting to sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” over and over?
Perhaps you noticed a manifestation of symptoms taking effect after watching the documentary “The Mighty Uke.” Other’s claim to have noticed a severe onset of symptoms after watching a youtube video of Jake Shimabukuro sitting on a rock in New York Central Park playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” Many find themselves dealing constantly with the desire to surround themselves with others who are dealing with these same tendencies.
If these symptoms describe you then you’ve been bitten by a flea bug of the jumping variety. In short…you’ve become a Flea Jumper.
They say this contamination began around 1880 in Hawaii when Portuguese immigrants arrived, bringing with them a tiny four stringed instrument called a “machete” which immediately infected the Hawaiian population. One of the first afflicted was a former British officer named Edward Purvis who was living in the court of the Hawaiian King. Reportedly Purvis became so overwhelmed while playing this little instrument that he began jumping around in exuberance. It seems he reminded the Hawaiian natives of a little jumping flea they called a “ukulele.” By the time the epidemic consumed all of Hawaii the instrument had become so associated with the term it became known as a “Ukulele.”
It’s this little instrument, the ukulele, that’s the source of all your symptoms. It has the power to take over one’s mind and initiate a strong desire to do nothing but pick one up and have a good time.
