How to get a B Flat!

In a college music theory class one warm spring day, the students I were having a hard time concentrating. The heat was oppressive and a wasp buzzed threateningly above their heads.

The teacher — oblivious to the dive-bombing menace — continued lecturing whilst the students dodged and swatted at the invader. Finally, it landed on one student's open book. With a quick slap, he snapped the book shut, killing the wasp. The professor, startled, looked up. "What was that?" he asked, annoyed by the interruption. Thinking quickly, the student answered sheepishly, "A bee flat."
