The saxophone is the Raper of all other instruments. Usually played by some sexy Guy, or if the situation permits a sexy girl. The saxophone is the result of Thor taking a gay little clarinet and Zeus taking a qreerish French horn and having a mad fight to the death. The result was two dead gods and a musical instrument to replace them. The leader of the saxophone family is of course the Alto, Which is the only saxophone good enough to be frequently used as a hand to hand combat weapon in World war I and later fired as heavy artillery ammunition in World War II.
Jay Beckenstein plays the Alto saxophone so well he could single handedly defeat Nazi Germany

An instrument that's fun to make fun of, but deep down inside, we all know it's pretty cool.
Those saxophone players are crazy, man.

While the trumpets say "We're the instrument made by God himself", and the clarinets say the same, it really doesn't matter to us because the saxophones combine the best of both. They get the smoothness and fluidity of the clarinet while getting the boldness and the jazziness of the trumpet, without the boringness of the clarinet or the obnoxiousness of the trumpet. While the others say, "Why are saxophones only for concert bands and jazz?", we say, "Because no one was awesome enough to come up with this mating of the clarinet and trumpet until 200 years ago". The point is, you really can't go wrong with the saxophone.
--200 years ago--

Trumpet player: I want to play a woodwind instrument!

Clarinet player: I want to play a brass instrument!

Adolphe Sax: Hmmm...

--Today--

Clarinet player: I want to play a brass instrument!

Trumpet player: I want to play a woodwind instrument!

Saxophone player: I can do both.

The most badass instrument ever. This instrument was and still is the source of the gods powers and originated as the physical preservation for a hyper-advanced alien races utopian society but was later discovered to have badass musical and practical properties. For example: a sax can be used as the ultimate chick magnet, opening beer bottles, and for killing that really annoying neighbor. It is also the only object known to mankind that duct tape cannot fix, for it will be incinerated by the sheer raw energy coursing through it and into the player, or should I say wielder of it. You can also leave the discovery of fire thanks to this wonderful instrument, back in the cave ages saxes were held up into a storm to be struck by lightning setting the surroundings ablaze, excluding the wielder. The ancients acquired their precious saxes from the now extinct saxophone tree but are now made in the monumental forge of Hephaestus himself.
Hot chick: so what do you like to do?

Saxophone wielder: all band, all the time.

Hot chick: eww. A band geek.

Saxophone wielder: I play sax

Hot chick: I love you.
