Ben Eley: Dog Whistler


WHAT is that irritating high pitched whistle that sounds like it’s stabbing you in the ear?  It’s Ben Eley’s favorite way of being annoying.  He’s been whistling through his teeth obnoxiously for years, and has perfected the art of driving an entire room of people crazy within milliseconds.  The most ingenious aspect of the trick, however, is that Ben can whistle at a frequency too high for adults to discern.  So while his peers may give him a hard time, his teachers are unable to punish him.  That’s what this reporter calls a sound plan.
