This man went on to become a successful business man with this famous slogan "5 wheels are better than 4 are better than 3" yes you guessed right, the midget organ was a flop but he went on to invent the 'mobility scooter' :lol: :lol:

Don't know what the fuss is about Mike.

We all know every jolly old house in England has a Parlour large enough for the quaint pipe organ pictured! In fact I may purchase the smaller version for my butler.
