There was just a news story about this guy on TV.
Steve the Whistler.
he's an "award winning" whistler, trying to get more people to whistle.

There was a guy who always came into the Retail Store of Doom who whistled. I worked a lot of early mornings, relieving the overnight team and setting up for the rest of the day. This guy.. .this whistler ... was a much older man, 60s to 70s , who literally wouldn't stop whistling.
You'd talk to him and in response he'd just gesture, never breaking the flow of his song. He looked really jolly. Rosy cheeked and untroubled, unlined face. His wife was a very pleasant woman as well.

We all hated this man. He'd walk into the store and the very mellow, laidback vibe I attempted to cultivate would go right away and we'd all be united in our disgust for this whistling asshole.

This Steve The Whistler guy ... you can buy a cd of his 'music'...
He's trying to bring it back, get more people to whistle...

If you just randomly walked around and beat the shit out of people, it couldn't be more annoying than a world that whistled more.

Did you look at the image of his CD? He is photographed whistling. At least, that what I'm assuming he is doing. A less polite person could make other assumptions :)

But it does remind me of a french horm player that gave a performance at college. I don't remember her name, but I'm told she was a famous, internationally known french horm player. I'm not sure how many of those there are. Her performance was very good, but she came back out on stage after her last song and told a story of how her interest in music started with learning to whistle. She then began whistling a song and somehow she was whistling two notes. It was very cool.
