Lips Together and Blow

But not for a kiss. This gift is for either sports nuts or the constantly vigilant, take your pick.

This genuine Acme (no, NOT the Acme from Looney Tunes) whistle does everything a whistle should. It's sturdy, shiny, has the real McCoy wooden ball inside it for maximum noise, and has a no-nonsense string. Believe it or not, these Acme whistles are hard to come by. In fact, the picky site that carries it is Swedish, precious, and prices everything in Swedish kroner (don't worry, the price isn't steep once you've done the Google conversion).

This is not a whistle for children. It's a whistle for people who appreciate good, solid, unchanging design. Or just want to make the most noise in the most stylish way possible. Order the Acme whistle at And get ready to blow.
