    Man, I would have loved to have one of those when we had the next door neighbors from hell who owned pit bulls….

    I’ll take that over car noise any day.

  3. That Evening Sun says:

    I don’t know about this. I got burned on a deal to buy some long horses a while back, so I’m skeptical.

  4. Clayton Hove says:

    I’m not 100% certain, but I think one of those roosters was my statistics professor.

    #15, you were indeed ripped off. Go and get a long cat.

  6. Phikus says:

    My cats freaked the fuck out when they heard this. It was much funnier than the roosters.

    #15-16: What about just getting a long little dogie?

    heh. I’m in Indonesia atm, and while I was in Malang I stayed with a friend’s family – between the early morning prayers at the local mosque (4am), the roosters getting all up with it (5am) or the insane amount of traffic (6am->) there was ample reason to go to bed at 10pm.

    Having said that, it was the roosters that did my head in.

    Wow.

    That cock just keeps on going.

    There are two annoying little chihuahua dogs living across the road that start chirping every time I walk out my door. One of these ought to put the fear of the coming apocalypse in them.

    Where can you buy one?

  11. Antinous says:

    The middle one sounds like Godzilla.

    I like the wheezing inhale of the third rooster.

    This is soooo my next ringtone!

    We had a cute little grey rooster named Edamame. Our next door neighbor complained about his crowing to the owner of the house. The next morning the owner threatened to come over and shoot the rooster and all the other chickens if they were not all gone that day. (We had permission from the owner to have chickens)

    What made the situation worse was that our 12 year old daughter answered the phone when the owner called.
    The owner mistook her for my wife as he tore into his rant that he was coming over that afternoon to kill our chickens if we did not do exactly as he said. When my wife got on the phone (after our daughter FREAKED THE PHUCK OUT) things became markedly worse. The conversation ended with us being curtly asked to move out ASAP.

    That was two months ago. We now happily live 35 miles outside Austin in the small city of Driftwood on ten acres of magic. Edamame was killed by raccons while he was “visiting” a friends farm during the interim. Our little yellow chicken Nausicaa, has not laid any eggs since Edamame died.

    Just something for all the rooster hataz of the world to keep in mind.

    @33 Pipenta: Good point. The sounds of these roosters are downright soothing compared to traffic noise. Especially car horns, which I have an irrational urge to seek out and smash upon sounding. I suppose that’s my neurotic affectation:-)

  17. synkarius says:

    I laughed for about five minutes at this. I don’t know why it’s so funny. I cried even.

  18. Jack says:

    If that rooster crows for more than four hours, please consult your rooster’s physician. Because I’m going to throw a brick at it.

  19. Xeni Jardin says:

    Are we sure these aren’t the same thing as “long horses”? I’m not so gullible, Frauenfelder.

    “hey, wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?” ^__^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-uqix9rthg

  21. Phikus says:

    I got a little red rooster too lazy to crow for days (x2).
    Keep everything in the barnyard, people, upset in every way.

  22. Pipenta says:

    I love roosters. I’ve had six of them at one time, all different breeds, all with different crows. The Japanese Chabo had the most melodic crow of the lot. There was a little old English game cock who had a crow that was so wheezy and creaky that I always wanted to give him a cough drop.

    I never had a long-crowing breed. But I don’t think I’d mind the sound. My neighbors didn’t mind the crowing. I went around and asked them all about it and they said they liked it. One told me “Why do you think we live out here? We like to have animals around.”

    And I will take the sound of chickens and horses and cows and barking dogs over lawn mowers and leaf blowers and traffic any day.

    I think this negative obsession with the sounds of rooster crowing is neurotic affectation. The same people hardly notice if a truck roars up their street in the wee hours.

  23. nanuq says:

    Somehow I don’t see long crowing as being a survival trait in a rooster. Especially after it got me out of a sound sleep. Darwin is not mocked.

  24. Fuzzybeard2016 says:

    Rooster #3 does not sound like a creature of this planet; rather, it sounds like one of the Old Ones summoning Cthulhu! *shiver*

  25. Doc says:

    Culturally, roosters are, like, 8 years behind the times.

    Damn, OOSHINY you beat me to it.

  27. alisong76 says:

    If any of my neighbours had one of those things, it certainly wouldn’t be for long.

    “Wow, what an annoying cock.”

  31. pilcrow says:

    I agree with alisong76. I wouldn’t hesitate to choke that chicken.

  32. Digital Artz says:

    Ah,having grown up with normal crowing roosters
    that sound from any of them is horrible ,decades
    later,what maniac bred these suckers?

  33. the89thkey says:

    im pretty sure the second and third ones are just slowed down?

  34. pinehead says:

    Two things came to mind:

    *laughter* God, what a set of lungs!

    and

    This is what wrist rockets were made for.

    haha, I’m sure I would found out very quickly whether or not they were delicious.
