Looks like a work of an evil mastermind, but it's just a harmless musical instrument :P

Must have a wife with a face like a slapped arse, that's why he spends all his spare time in a shed making things like this...

He should probably reconsider its name if he wants to bring it to market, though. :)
Aside from that I'd buy one. \o/

#14 A musical Farting Machine Sir! 8-) Oh man, I haven't laughed that hard in quite some time. This is great! Truly an interesting machine and downright comical in nature. Something that makes my inner child marvel with amazement and my adult side yell at its impracticality. #6 Wouldn't doubt it. Though I would imagine that he will be spending more time in the shed AFTER the creation of this machine. >:)
