Does anyone have any vague idea of what a bending spoon might sound like? Apparently ‘bend’ doesn't work.

(This topic is open to any other sound effects)

Someone really needs to make an onamatopeida, because questions like this come up a lot.

WOM perhaps? I use WOM for a lot of strange magical type things.

wiiiiiiiuuuuuoiiiing…

Something akin to running a wet finger around the edge of a wineglass.

“WOM” isn't a good phrase for a spoon bending, but it might fit for the melodious sound one of those red Voit dodgeballs makes when colliding with some kid's head. (Or, more precisely, “WHONNNGG!!”)

If it's a big skeaky spoon it can sound like: Squrk!

I have a spoon that sounded funny like that when I bend it.

Maybe someone should sticky this thread and leave it for anyone to come and post “I need a sound for —- ”

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

PS: Don't say “cl”, jerkwads. Or “ap”.

Mr. Neil
Oh! I've got the perfect spoon-bending sound effect!

*uri*

…Geller?

A better question would be:

Do spoons even make a noise when they get bent?

EDIT: I just choked on a chocolate easter egg. I made a “HAC HAC HAC” noise. I blame this thread.

Now I need a sound effect for a chicken fired out of a cannon.

I'm being serious here.

Ah-ha! it depends on the type of cannon.
Mr Niel has suggested an air-cannon sound effect. But what sound would the chicken make if fired from a muzzle loading, closed breech, smoothbore style cannon with gunpowder propellant, such as they have on the old wooden sailing ships?
Or even the massive rifled breach loaders with cordite propellant that they used to have on the old battleships?

…Enquiring minds want to know!

:? I guess for a generic stereotypical canon.

Well, then Neil nailed it.

Nope, the cliché, stereotype cannon is:
“a muzzle loading, closed breech, smoothbore style cannon with gunpowder propellant, such as they have on the old wooden sailing ships”
:P

Air cannons are most often found in circuses, freak shows, and comic strips!

The point that I was jokingly making was that you didn't really want the sound effect for a chicken being fired from a cannon. What you really wanted was a comic, made up sound effect for a comic made up event.
No critisism implied at all by that! It's just my ironic sense of humour that no one else seems to get…

Whoops, didn't know there were so many replies.
For the chicken, well, I saw it on Mythbusters once. Man that is a good show.

Anyway, cannon noises can be expressed in a lot of ways. For loud cannons, usually Ka-POW suffices (not to be confused with Ka-PIE). A cannon in a distance or in a game of Super Mario Brothers goes something along the lines of Da-Doom. The important thing is that it probably should have two noises, which creates quite an emphasis that BOOM just can't pull off on its own. Also there's usually an echo in the distance. So try to switch around Ka, Da, Ba, with Pow, Boom, and, er, that's all I can think of. Depending on the scenario the cannon is in, it might make a different noise. Just keep trying them out 'till you find one right for you.
