Once upon a time I had a 15" Woofer mounted in the ceiling above the door linked to a 300W amp and a 
short digital recording of the old doorbell from the Addams family.
Scared the wits outa many a JW :p)
One particularly Scotch fueled party saw the recording replaced by a long "soggy breaking of wind".
That one only lasted until we sobered up.

to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable
for their apparent disinclination to do so." -- Douglas Adams
