Funny background noises ruin war thrill

Goofy sounds to ruin effect of loud booms and shrieking bombs.

[edit: changed from "fun" to "thrill"]

Inappropriate music can make the whole attack lose its "wind".

When the enemy guns fire, they hear boiiiiiiiiing, wa wa wa wa wa....

When the brigade yells its war cry, the Sour Kraut band is heard playing the enemy march off tune.

Enough to frustrate any general.

       This is how I imagine a [beanangel] idea would look like if it were distilled three times over. Needs a bit more Happylong to be honest, but I'll give you a bun anyway.

       I actually thought this was a beany-bake, then I noticed the capitalization.   

       It wouldn't work, but it wouldn't hurt either. Buns away!   

       Neeeeeerrowww-PLONK! [+]

       [-] the booms and whistles and stuff aren't really there for entertainment.

       The obvious problem I can see with this idea is that if you actually implemented it, you'd likely be court-martialed on charges of “trivializing the war”. (link)

       Presumably some quixotic notion about making them recognize the silliness and ultimate futility of war. I highly doubt it would have the intended effect, or that it would even be remotely practical to implement, but I just like the imagery. I'm imagining loud fart noises played with each round fired.

       //I mean, how do you disguise the sound of an explosion?// After the explosion you could have the sound of a hubcap rolling around in a spolling disk fashion. Or perhaps the sound of PacMan dying after he has been caught by a ghost.

       it's basically the same principle as fireworks, but applied to the boom instead of the visual.
