Electronic Bagpipes Exist

All music is always improved with the inclusion of bagpipes -- and the louder, the better. The are the ideal instrument for not only playing music but also distinguishing between people of refined tastes and uncultured primitives employed at this Whataburger restaurant.

Ideally, one should play analog bagpipes, but sometimes electronic bagpipes serve a role (warning: electronic bagpipes are vulnerable to EMP attack). Twitter user DC Unhilist recently encountered a man playing a set on an airplane. The musician selfishly kept his earphones plugged in so that only he could hear the music.

Electronic bagpipes are real and have apparently been around for many years. They can include simple chanter and blowstick, as well as one at least one model with an actual bag to squeeze. Verily, we live in an age of wonders.

Being Scottish I happen to like listening to bagpipes playing. I find the sound compelling. When my uncle died they had a piper for his funeral and it was such a powerful feeling. It brought me to tears during the church service. I really don't know of any musical instrument that I don't like but it saddens me to know so many people dislike the bagpipes.
