    that is really what she said

    hahaha this is awesome. it takes the immaturity of making loud and obnoxious noises, as well as the entertainment of making something functional and mixes the two perfectly. my peers will be angry at me during lunch now. thanks :)

    Nice video. My science teacher showed me this last year. He showed me that the length effects the sound. I inserted a slightly thinner straw to make the length variable. If a straw slightly thinner is not available tape can be built up to ensure a tight connection. Before watching your video I did not know the shape of the plastic reid effects the sound.
