The relationship between and edgy sound and a youthful sound is well
known in pinko political circles. The word "edgy" was code for atomic
bomb secrets during WW2, so when someone says they have an "edgy sound"
what they are really saying is that they want everyone on the central
communist party committee to play on plastic instruments. That's a
danger to our national interests and cannot be tolerated.

On the other hand, a "youthful" sound is not only pinko, it has sexual
undertones, implying a desire to have carnal knowledge of devices such
as McCormack reapers, and bench-mounted vices. It's unnatural, that's
what it is. You can tell how very evil people who have a "yougthful
sound" are by observing the fluttering motion of their nostrils, a sure
sign of depraved sexual activity. When it comes to sexual depravity, I
know these things well.

I hope that these clarifying and right-wing political comments have been
and will be of help to you and your students. Let's not tolerate these
pinko left-wingers in the clarinet business.
