I don't recall the exact quote, but I believe it was merlyn in the Chatterbox who coined the phrase "Personal Drummer".   That is, a drummer who would follow you around to provide rimshots after corny jokes and bad puns. (g)

    If I recall, it's because someone was talking about "firing their drummer". Of course, they meant in the context of being part of a band, but my little comedy brain hiccupped and said "ahh, a personal drummer, that'd be cool", and started making up things a personal drummer would do.
