I am a college English instructor, so I have a lot of discussion in my class. Sometimes, when everyone is silent, I'd like to have a little device that makes the sound of crickets chirping to make fun of the silence. I suppose it would lose its novelty after a while, but it would be funny the first
time with a class.
Electronic Cricket kit, $9.95

Another use for this, perhaps?

||ET, You would have hated me as a student! In high school any time a teacher made a stupid joke and the room went quiet I would say " Cricket, Cricket, Cricket". Most teachers sent me away to the office while the class just laughed at the joke.
||I'd have batted your ear.
||Yeah, good point. I'd have said that, but I actually had trouble finding a plain sound generator, rather than a kit. (So,
nice searching, xandram!)
||Can't you make a cricket-y sound by running a fingernail quickly across the teeth of a fine comb?
||Or possibly a device, much like a clay pigeon launcher, that fires a small tumbleweed across the room and plays a "wind whistling" noise?
||Damn. Just seen someone got there before me. As you were.
