How to make Termites In An Amplified Piano:
1 Place a piano outside in a location where termites will be happy.
2 Have an expert termite wrangler establish a colony of termites.
3 Connect the microphone contained in the piano to an amplifier and speaker system.
4 Enjoy the sounds emitting from the piano as it naturally resonates to the termites going about their business of eating the instrument, in anticipation of the loud twangs, as the wires under tension eventually collapse the weakened frame.

Note - works best with wooden frame pianos.

       Elephants love bagpipes and often try to imitate the sounds they make.
