Argueably one of the most bizzarre species of band geek. These people's brains are compromised by immese amounts of pressure building up in their heads as they work to push a ton of air through that tiny little reed. Their approximate male to female ratio is 1:3. They do not get much drama in their section which can probably be attributed to their small numbers and tendancy not to care very much about anything but their reeds. Oh yeah, harm an oboe reed or threaten to, and they will freak out on you. Contrary to popular belief, the oboe is not used often for masturbation (not only do the players not tend to be very pervy, but it's just too small!) Oboe players can usually play at least one other instrument too. Thus, they are bisectional.
