Quand un Liégeois parle de chiques à un Bruxellois, cela se passe comme ça :

Cette vidéo de la Communauté Française Wallonie – Bruxelles, réalisée par Benoît Mariage – auteur notamment de plusieurs longs métrages avec Benoît Poelvoorde -, vise à rapprocher les différentes communautés de Bruxelles et de Wallonie.

The following story makes sense if you know some music theory :

C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, « Sorry, but we don’t serve minors. » So the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished; the G is out flat.

An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, « Excuse me. I’ll just be a second. » An A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.

Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, « Get out now! You’re the seventh minor I’ve found in this bar tonight. »

The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says: « You’re looking sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development. » This proves to be the case, as the E-flat takes off the suit, and everything else, and stands there au naturel.

Eventually, the C sobers up, and realizes in horror that he’s under a rest. The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless. The bartender decides he needs a rest – and closes the bar.
