No, Schwarzenegger says "I'll be Bach!"

The internet is littered with variations on this theme, some of which are amusing.

An example is Mr. Schwarzenegger is portrayed as a Home Depot employee and as asked where something can be found. The answer is "Aisle B, back".

This could be inserted in Pink Floyd The Wall scene The Trial where The Judge speaks 😂

The evidence before the court is
Incontrovertible, there's no need for
The jury to retire.
In all my years of judging
I have never heard before
Of someone more deserving
Of the full penalty of law.
The way you made them suffer,
Your exquisite wife and mother,
Fills me with the urge to defecate!

Since, my friend, you have revealed your
Deepest fear,
I sentence you to be exposed before
Your peers.
Tear down the wall!

What do you get if you drop a piano on an air force base?

And what do you get if you drop a piano down a mine shaft?

Yup, you guessed it:

The first one: "a flat major"

The second one: "a flat miner"
"That Guy" notes that there is a difference between a key signature (which is what was pictured) and a key which is a tonality. "major" and "minor" indicate tonalities.

With no additional data (like notes or chords) the top key signature can either be A flat, A flat major or F minor. Similarly the second one can be C flat, C flat major or A flat minor. So while the elements of the joke are there it doesn't take too much familiarity with music notation and theory to overthink things. I only got it when I vocalized the top one and then figured out what C flat's relative minor was.
