In an interview with a sound effects guy, he was asked if there was one they couldn't use or something to that effect. "Oh, yes" they had needed a sound effect for a body hitting pavement and had the bright idea to get up on a ladder with a watermelon... only the resulting sound was too gruesomely suggestive to be used in the movie. I can personally attest that a large piece of pumpkin from about 180 feet onto a stone terrace is pretty good.

The thing that gets me about the hippo clip is the, "What was that?"

Just how loud and long does a fart have to be in order to be identified?

note to self; always insert the mortars the right way round

I heard of an experiment about excluding surrounding sounds one could perceive.
The person was in a maximally sound proof room, and the frightening sound of the heart thumps is what one then hears most.

I heard that K.H Stockhausen might have considered the bass drum in massively produced (popular) music as fascism.

Several people have mentioned the dentist's drill.

I have a theory as to why: it sounds like a very loud mosquito.

Maybe words. Depending on what is being said.

^was gonna say, the sound of one hand clapping? Funny thing, it's hard to argue about either one.

Another horrible one is the sound of a shameless politician when they change the tone and inflection of their voice in a patronzing and sad attempt to appeal to a group with which they have no real connection. Prime example:
