That is way too funny!!! Years ago we were working on an extended network of microVAX machines at a small startup company. Someone "discovered" the feature that allowed remote logins on other peoples machines. This was a neat simple way to allow the visitor to your machine to run the audio program and generate a number of "special" sounds emanating from your office/cube. The favored sounds were of course bathroom in nature, a toilet flush could be heard at any point during the day for over a week. It came to a head (pun intended) when sales was escorting a potential customer through the engineering areas and flushing (as well as other) sounds were heard. A short and to the point office memo was generated that day prohibiting such "playful" activity.
