Default Fun With Pipe Insulation

Go buy a 6' length of foam pipe insulation - you know, the gray stuff
with the slit.

Roll up a ball of tin foil, just small enough that it fits snugly into
the end of the foam.

Wait for your wife to be fixing dinner in the kitchen.

Sneak into the room next to the kitchen, bend the foam around the wall
and blow forcefully into the other end.

Listen for the POP!, soon to be followed by a yell of some sort.

She'll love you for it...trust me!

BTW...it works just as well with teenage daughters while they're
chatting on the computer.

I gave my nephew an Airzooka. His sister is going to hate me for it!
The Megazooka should be able to knock someone's hat off at 20 paces.
They're also the ultimate cat toys.

Even better. Take a 6" piece of the foam and put it under the covers at foot
level. This works equally well with a Coke bottle, coat hanger, rolled-up
belt, hairbrush, or almost anything else that's not supposed to be there.

The first reaction, indeed the ONLY reaction, when a female's foot touches a
strange object is that the object must be a mouse.
