My 90 year old mother-in-law appreciates the loud horn when she goes through a red light when she's coming back from Texas Saloon at midnight!

You probably wouldn't be as mad if you hadn't crabbed your pants.

And we care about this because? I am still waiting for you to get to that part.
maybe next time you could include an amusing, or even inflammatory, story about how this nemesis ruined your life or something. Might get the rest of us hyped up on your behalf.

Wrong state. It should be "The Yellow Rose Of Texas".

Some people complain that their air horns are not loud enough, or that they are too high pitched for them. Well here is an idea to add to your horns. Buy a Cobra 128 CB radio (the one with the PA switch to it), have some tech modify it with "talkback" and "echo", then get a outside bullhorn loudspeaker and hide it under the hood. When you hit the PA button and talk into it, you get the loud and "echo-ie" voice coming out and you can yell all sorts of stuff to amend whet the horn will do. If that isn't loud enough, buy a car stereo amplifier and hook THAT up. NOW, you have one loud mother-jumpin' voice that when you tell them to "Move over to the RIGHT!!" they will get out of you way, real quick!

I know the last time I attended a graduation ceremony a guy behind me had an air horn. I told him he had to move if he wanted to blow his horn, since he sat down after we did. I explained if he blew his horn near my ear, I was going to return the favor and assault him, which could include a flying lesson down the bleachers. This was six years ago when my health was better and I was with a large group of females with no one else to speak up for them. Air horns are for arseholes except on boats.Only bullies take airhorns to public gatherings with the intent of blowing them in order to draw attention to themselves with no regard to the hearing of people around them.
