Are you bored with your toilet making the same boring sound every time you flush? Well then I've got just the thing for you! Introducing Toilet Tones! For the low, low price of just $9.95 per flushtone, you can have all your favorite toilet-time-tunes at the jiggle of a handle!
...Um, no that's not right. Sorry, I must have dreamed that last bit. This instructable is about adding the Super Mario Bros. warp pipe sound effect to your toilet flushing experience. To do this we'll be using an inexpensive "sound drop key chain" which has the warp pipe sound effect. A sound drop key chain is a bauble that plays a single sound effect when you press a button. The green key chain in the second picture above plays the warp pipe sound effect.
