I went to the Mere Mortals site and seen this Item. Since my kids have grown up and moved away I can not think of a kid any where in the world that should go without one of these. Real easy to make. Here is the site if your interested http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/2010/12/make-really-loud-noisemaker.html

Everyone most have some one out there that needs payback. What a nice little gift for their children :-).

Yes Norm I remember I had one like it it my childhood, drove my parents nuts.
It’s the greatest “revenge” gift to give your grandchildren. :-)

When I was young, no self-respecting football fan (soccer to you US guys) would go to a Saturday match without his ‘rattle’.

Don,
Yes, and I would die for some decent cod and chips and a pickled onion here …. luckily we have plenty of wallys here. :-)
I do however have a good supply of PG tips, Bisto and Oxo, Branston, HP and salad cream ….. to name a few. You might want to send me some clotted cream, then my tea time will be complete.
Cheers, Roger

Roger – alas! It appears that is not normally permitted to import diary products into the US, so I’m not able to send you some clotted cream after all. :-(

All I can offer is http://www.britishdelights.com/cream.htm, which is in MA, and does appear to ship the only correct accompaniment to scones and strawberry jam (jelly) within the ‘states.

But it does beg the the question (like when having a boiled egg for breakfast, do you cut the top off, or bash it with your spoon ?) – do you put the cream on first, or the strawberry jam ??? One’s chosen method does have important social overtones.
