Solfege abuse!

Bart Collins has pointed out a foul-mouthed toy piano, but he (and the local news program) miss the real problem. This horrible keyboard is promoting anachronistic modes!

Until one day when she and Autumn were playing with it.

DO - RA - ME - FA - SO...

And Autumn played a section backwards...


Rather than playing in the major mode (DO RE MI FA SOL) as God intended, or at least the minor mode (DO RE ME FA SOL) approved by minor deities, Fisher-Price has apparently created a demonic instrument that spouts out Phrygian scales. Now all our little tykes will be singing Mille Regretz rather than Mary Had a Little Lamb. Quelle horreur!
