I love how the ancient Lister diesels sound like a grandfather clock. And a pneumatic clockwork valve? It appeals to every part of my geekitude.

If you want to know how loud it is just go to a truck repair shop, put your head between two airhorns and tell them to sound off

I wanna marry a foghorn blower.
and have her keep me company
I wanna marry a foghorn blower
and live by the side of the sea.

She can polish my horn on sunny clear days
So ships in the fog can find their way
I wanna marry a foghorn blower.
Won't that be okay?


I think I found the perfect girl too:

That song was on the Clockwork Orange soundtrack. In the movie, it was playing in the background during the scene where Alex discovers his parents have rented out his old room.

Great soundtrack album.

That poor girl is probably in her mid-thirties by now. She's got a house and kids and as such she know exactly who farted but she's too tired to care. Crack a box of wine though and she's like, "Kids are in bed, mommy wants a drinky!"
