Fool your friends and neighbors into thinking that they scraped the bottom of their car!

In similarity to the old classic whoopie cushion gag, this device is placed discreetly in your friend's or neighbor's driveway or parking space. When he pulls in, he hears a "SKREESHHHHH" noise as if he just dragged the bottom of his bumper or spoiler on the curb from pulling in too close.

This is also fun to put at the end of a driveway. Some cars sit so low that if you come down a driveway or a ramp too quickly you will scrape the bottom of the car. Well now you can surprise them even if they didn't really come down the ramp too quickly. This is even fun with other sounds such as running over pot holes, big rocks, or even the sound of a plastic bag getting caught under the fender.

       I like the Whoopie Curb. It’s fun. It’s harmless. It’s worth a [+]!   

       It also gives me the idea that I could cause the same effect using speakers in my front yard to broadcast horrible sounds to intimidate the ever present residential speeders.   

       I could vary the sound type based on speed – as in - Semi-fast = Sound of a blowout; Fast = Screeching tires; Outrageously Fast = A thump, scream, and then the sound of a body tumbling in the wheel-well.   

       I considered gun shots but they might shoot back…

       I think this might be more appropriate as a Whoopie Speed Bump.
