A four-stringed instrument that looks like a slighlty larger violin, but oncloser inpection its sound is more like that of a cello. Very smooth, mellow sound, but usually they get the shitty parts.
The viola sounds good but they never get any good music.

One of the five major stringed instruments. Tuned in a middle register, exactly an octave higher than the cello. Music written primarily in alto clef, occasionally treble. The brunt of many, many jokes.
What do you do with a dead viola player? Move him back a desk.

But why are viola jokes so short? So violin players can understand them.

A glorious stringed instrument that creates a rich, warm tone when played, unlike the violin which can sound like someone is strangling a cat -- sometimes several cats. Either orchestras have barely any violas, or so many they have no idea what to do with all of them.
Hey, how big is your viola section?
About fifteen, this year.
Good, maybe you can drown out the violins. How many of them are there?
About sixteen.
Yes! We're coming up!
