In the bad old days before TV and computers, the most popular form of family entertainment was the whoopee cushion, a tooty balloon originally made from a pig’s bladder. The whoopee cushion would be inflated and hidden under grandad’s chair cushion.

It was the best thing ever (especially when the dog caught the teeth and ran about wearing them and grinning).
