    Remind me not to use that kit to phone any pig farmers or to call the effluent engineer at the local water company!

    Could be interesting

    Prank calls would be hilarious - I'd be constantly ring up my mates and farting down the phone at them!

    So are these completly hack proof, or could the BOFH be busy filling my house with the smell of fresh poo as I drive home?

    not imaginative enough

    Come on, this is from the country that sells (or used to) used panties in vending machines.

    Yes, whatever kinky scent your westernized brain can image, and dozens more that you wouldn't ever think of, will be sold in the little sex shops that abound in certain sections of Tokyo...

    I'd prefer the Wasp T-10 Speechtool's thermotones, although I have heard that you can't use them in either Central London or Hull, due to interference from the London Aquarium and the Deep causing the anti-shark action to go haywire.

    The inclusion of every known integer on the keypad is nice though.
