Unscramble the Blue Letters

This is a little straw, and what you do is you just nip two corners here, and this becomes like a byab crocodile's mouth. You put this in your mouth, and you blow. (Honk) It's children's delight, a teacher's envy, as they say. You're not able to see how the sound is produced, because the thing which is vibrating goes inside my htoum. I'm going to keep this outside, to blow out. I'm going to suck in air. (hnok) So no one actually needs to muck up the odpnroiuct of sound with wire vibrations. The other is that you keep blowing at it, keep making the sound, and you keep cutting it. And something very, very nice happens. (Honk) (Applause) And when you get a very small one — (Honk) This is what the kids teach you. You can also do this.
