Where does he keep the flute?

Where did this flute come from? I've been reading the Alley Oop strip now since 1995 and I've never heard of Oop having the slightest interest in music. Suddenly today Oop pulls this flute out of nowhere and starts playing it. Doc Wonmug obviously has never seen it before either when he makes his "Nice flute" comment. But Oop insists that he always carries the flute around with him along with his ever present stone axe.
So I have just one question. Since Oop normally goes around wearing nothing by a loincloth, where does he keep the flute? I can think of only one place and I'd rather not mention it.
