A 4 stinged instrument that looks like a violin, only it isn't often times it is mistaken for one by someone of lower education backrounds. It is the only instrument that plays in the auto cleff on a regular basis. Violist tend to play only rhythm (never melody). There are no good solos for violas. Violist tend to be the butt of most unfunny instrument jokesand can be substituted for a third violins section.
~Man, can you hear that awsome viola section?
~oh ok good neither could I

A terrible instrument. No one likes the viola and it is extremely cringe-worthy. The true heros of the orchestra is the violins and cellos. Violas just try to be cool like them by playing low notes (like a cello) and being a small instrument.
Gross, is she a viola player? Well, that sucks that she has like 6 other people to play with her.

The Viola is a string instrument that is classified by all violin players as the worst instrument to ever exist.
The Viola can be summed up in one video, you viola you scream by TwoSetViolin

Get the Viola mug.
A wooden box that originated in the 16th century made to sound like a dying cat. Often times the cat can be removed from the box, leaving behind the skeleton of a violin.
Someone please stab that viola!

An adolescent. Derived from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, specifically from Malvolio's description of Viola in Act 1 Scene 5: "Not yet old enough for a man, nor young enough for a boy..."
"How old is your son?"
"Oh, he's a Viola."

A lower pitch and a little larger than a violin.
Boy 1: Hey man I just got a viola it's pretty sick!

Boy 2: Can I hear it?

Boy 1: Sure here!

Boy 2: Wow that sounds pretty nice.

An instrument played by people who aren't any good at the violin and never will be.
There's a lot more violin concerti than Viola concerti because Violas aren't as good as violins.
