The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Dear David,
I have just finished reading "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." One character refers to a gay man as "playing the pink oboe." Have you heard this before?

Dear Music Lover,
What gives with all this Indian stuff? This has to be the new "it" country. I think you have heard me refer to my fraternity brother Dick DeBolt that wrote all of these obsure lyrics to popular songs? At any rate, he used to refer to the "skin flute." But that is the only similar reference I have heard. Maybe this is just the new twist on an old saying.
