Dirty Whistlers Not Welcome At International Competition

LOUISBURG, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There will be a lot of hot air in Louisburg, North Carolina, starting next Monday (Apr. 16) – and that’s not just whistling “Dixie.”

The city’s 34th Annual International Whistling Competition starts that day and more than 160 windbags from all over the country will be competing for the coveted “Best Whistler” title.

Each contestant is required to tweet both classical and pop tunes and event spokesman Allen de Hart – a self-proclaimed whistling expert – says puckered-up performers can toot anything except for certain rock or rap tunes with obscene lyrics.

It might seem hard to detect a song’s lyrics through a whistle, but de Hart is certain that “the performance would be dirty by intent.”

De Hart says the best advice for winning it all is to “just pucker and let the hum flow in and out. Judges do not want to hear you breathe.”

He also suggests wannabe whistlers carry a full bottle of olive oil and a fresh tube of lipstick at all times, to ensure your trophy winning lips are up to par.
