    The "flute of shame" is a medieval contraption inflicted upon bad musicians at a time when public humiliation was a ruler's means of invoking fear in the people he controlled. Not only was it imposed upon displeasing musicians, but public performs in general who were deemed lewd, offensive, or bothersome. The device would be fitted around the subjects neck, with the fingers clamped tightly along the flute, where it could remain for days.

    "I don't hear any sounds in flutes, all I hear is noise. If you get any closer to the mic I'm going take your flute and break it across my fucking knee."
