A precursor? [Galbinus_Caeli, Aug 10 2006]

       Hilarious! I love it. I would definately get more excercise with something like this. Walking the floors wouldn't be such a dreadful thing anymore.   

       Of course, it might work to deter criminals who fear being heard. AH! And alas, hinder late night snackers who don't want to get caught snacking!

       I don't think I would *ever* get tired of such a carpet!
Tasty pastry for you!

       The original whoopee carpet as you mentioned would be ideal for the hallway to your bathroom. As guests or relatives trot along post-haste, resounding parps will be drowned out only by resounding laughter, titters, guffaws etc as you listen safely from the warmth of your television.

       Does it come in a rug design too? One that makes a shotgun-pumping sound. That way you could place the rug by the door when you go out of town to scare the be-jeebers out of any would-be thief.

       I have quite squeaky floors already, thank you.   

       Now if this thing could have a noise cancellation installed in little patches of carpet, I could stick the little patches wherever the floor squeaks and viola! no noise.   

       Patches? Patches?! I need lots of stinkin' patches.

       This just became my alltime best idea. Weeeeeee

       Holy COW!!!! my first 2.5 bun idea. I am so happy.

       Congratulations, young grasshopper.

       I can't fathom what somebody doesn't like about this idea after all this time. It was my best ever with a flawless record. I guess the autoboner finally caught up with me after more than a year. Good bye 2.5 buns!
