Dotted Notes Extend Lives

dotted notes Favorite find of the week. If you don't get the joke, dotted notes in musical notation are notes extended by half of their original value. If a quarter note represents one beat, a dotted quarter note represents one-and-a-half beats (hence why the dot "prolonged its life). (via Pinterest)
