Earlobe Expander *Zip Whistles

*My terminology for those tubes you blow in that cause a small metal disk to spin at a high rate of speed providing a delightful high-pitch whistle sound.

'Fleshtubes' (those grotesquely large ear piercing styles that create expanded holes in earlobes lined by tubular material) need some zip. What could be more fun than a wind zipwhistle to announce to the world that you've arrived, and what better way could there be to get a direct sense of windspeed and wind direction changes than a change in whistle frequency?

       //what better way could there be// is always a dangerous question here.   

       Still, [+], you crazy fool.

       Is the blowing tube an extra-long piercing that runs through your cheek at the back of your mouth?

       Ooh what sound will the African lip disk make?

       It's been a long, long time since I was last tempted to blow in someone's ear.

       I knew there was an annotation that inspired me to do this somewhere.

       Could we make it sound more like a swanee whistle?
