This is an idea for a joke/novelty product.

An aerosol-alike can which is in fact an electronic device which, when the button is pressed, issues forth a stream of cuss words at random, providing comedic effect.

    Hi Nemo,

      This would be fairly straight forward - you'd use a small battery and a speaker connected to a flashed
      memory chip with audiocodec on-board.  Purpose made chips of this sort are readily available and found
      in all manner of obnoxious toy.  The big challenge would be programming the chip etc.

        Had idea. Many years ago. Reminded myself of it today...

        So, how easy to construct a small (approx the size of a can of coke) device which is 100% self contained
        (ie, battery and speakers included), which at the press of a button would play through a series of short
        audio samples (one or two words long each one) at random, untill the button is released?

        I'm not asking for much detail - about 30seconds thought worth of detail is fine.

        The idea? "cuss in a can". Like a can of flyspray, but instead it just yells profanities about...
