Muggsy Spanier

Over at Nige's place (again) commenter Dearieme writes:

"Muggsy Spanier was the cornet players' cornet player."

Anyone got a better sentence than that?

Not related to the "x's x" format of sentence under discussion but I was recently pointed at this which contains the sentence:

207 BC: Chrysippus, a Greek stoic philosopher, is believed to have died of laughter after watching his drunk donkey attempt to eat figs.

I don't think any aspect of it can be improved upon, if it's a different animal, fruit or he's some other type of philosopher it doesn't work nearly as well.

That is good, Kev.

Oh and I've used the sentence already.
