Why Is it Hard To Whistle In The Shower ?
« on: 06/10/2008 17:23:47 »
Dear Whistlers and People Who Give Pleasure With Their Mouths !

As a sheep, I am of course an avid whistler !!....after all ewe gotta prep those babes for a good rogering !..eh ?...some sweet muzak really puts them in the mood for some good Ramming !!

Here I am pretending to be the Pied Piper !



So, when I take my annual shower I usually leave my tin whistle out because it'll rust !...so, there I go, jumping in for my annual 3 minutes !....To while away the protracted shower time i try to whistle conventionally but have found that when my mouth is wet...it just does not work !! (or it does but very poorly !)

So...why does a wet mouth make for poor whistling woe !!...EWE try it !!...*sheepy taps fingers*....see..?...see what I eman ?

why's that then ?



mwah mwah mwah !

Don't you need a dry mouth to whistle? If you do, then maybe its because whilst in the shower, some of that water is entering your mouth...maybe...

I cannot whistle at all, however the noise is made because your lips vibrate causing compressions and depressions in the air. Most people moisten their lips first to create a smoother edge for the air to flow through... I would guess that the excess water from the shower compromises this smooth edge making it more difficult to create the sound (though probably not impossible).

Next year, try whistling without your head under the water.. if it still doesn't work then maybe the heat and humidity has an effect also (I assume sheep like nice warm showers)
