Doorbell - press button and make an explosion sound

I'm thinking of making a prank doorbell where you press the button and an explosion sound goes off. I seem to be a little stuck on choosing a simple audio input that I can put an explosion sound on. Any suggestions?

thanks!

A wav shield would allow you to play any recorded wav (sdcard) at the touch of a button.

I would encourage you to think very carefully about this. Some things to consider are what would happen if a police officer rang your doorbell? What if a neighbor heard the "explosion" and called the police?

For good or bad, such a thing could put others in a panic if they aren't in on the joke. Just consider how it will be used before going through with it. Some people are touchy about such things. :)
Maybe a siren instead?
