Best notes you have seen on a score?

We just started working on the song 'Cute' with my jazz trio/quartet.

The (very old) lead sheet that was given to us by the piano player says "15 second drum solo" on it.

I told them since there wasn't a tempo listed, I wasn't sure how long to play. ;-)

I can't think of any good ones, but once I did include an instruction on a piano part to “arpeggiate like a bastard.”

I received a score today with the penciled in phrase "out like a sniper victim" over a measure of rest after a busy phrase.

Made my laugh.
