Because we can make it worse...
  [vote for,

The recorder is either one of the worst instruments of all time or one of the best implements in psychological warfare. It really depends upon your perspective. It is usually deployed by irregular forces of 8 year olds in their ongoing fight for self-determination against the controlling faction known as "parents". They have so many advantages: they are robust, portable, cheap*, readily hidden and are practically indefensible. They are best used when blown really very hard to get a sort of discordant screechy polytone.

They have one issue however, that the child blowing the instrument has to take a breath occasionally. This gives hope to the enemy.

I propose that a bag be constructed, and this be fed by the child's regular blowing action. A pipe from bag to recorder will allow continuous screeching polytones to menace the psyche of the pesky adults with their bourgeois late bedtimes and unlimited access to the treat jar.

*often supplied by the enemy..

       Having, relatively recently, heard a recorder played by an expert. I have to conclude that the actual weapon involved is 8 year old children, who's deployment should probably be banned by the Geneva Conventions.

       How do you get the child into the bag?

       Open the bag, place the child inside. The child is now in the bag.

       Excellent. All that then remains is to make the bag/recorder assemby completely airtight.   

       And thus is progress made. [+]
