I must try that!

On the "babbling fool" thing, try using DMR radios (Mototrbo, Hytera) with the 500ms processing delay:
"Radio cheeeee uh one t- uhm uhubbuh..." tail off into incoherence.  Of course since your mike is still open and the receiver is right beside it, you get this King Tubby delay feedback echo, Lee Scratch Perry thing going on.
