Step 2: Cut and Prep the Straw

If your straw has a flexible joint, cut that off.
Then, squish the straw by pressing it against the table, counter, or any other surface. It will need to be pretty flat. Next, take your scissors and cut the sides off of the squished end of the straw, at a diagonal.
This piece will vibrate in your mouth, causing the buzz effect.
