Novelty bicycle horns?

My husband and I are looking for a horn that makes a fart-sound. Please don't judge me, I am who I am It's not only for us, but our 7 year old nephew that we are trying to get into riding. Are there any places that stock these kinds of things? Any info is appreciated.

I'm a school bus driver.

A couple of years ago I had a group of kindergarden boys in the front of the bus who were making fart noises. After a while I said "Enough with the flatulence noises." and eventually got them to stop. Next morning they were back to the same thing. Evidentally I wasn't the only one who had tired of the game because another of my 5 year olds yelled out "Enough with the flatulence noises."

I love my job!

I knew a guy who could play 'Dixie' with his right hand tucked into his left arm pit, Damn what a talented fellow. And he was trying to learn how to fart the Star Spangled Banner until he **** his pants in one of the booths at the local tavern.....oh, that was funny, it's obvious that it doesn't take much to tickle my funny bone.....hee, hee, ha, ha, ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know of anything commercially made, but I would imagine you could fashion one. One of my cousins had some squeeze toy that made that kind of noise. My guess is some sort of bracket could be fashioned using a hose clamp of some sorts. Maybe this is helpful since it seems no one took you seriously on here.

It would have to be a very loud fart to get through to the cagers. I prefer a loud bell, or even better a yell and a thump on the windshield.

There were two kids in the grocery store playing with a whoopie cushion in the aisle with the toys. Cheap and effective. Their mom was pretty embarassed, though.

I would get a standard squeeze bulb bike horn and a whoopee cushion and then glue the orifice of the whoopee cushion onto the horn. Get a big squeeze bulb.
