It's a question we have all asked ourselves: ''If we can have silencers for our pistols, why can't we have silencers for our throats?''
The answer is: At last, we can! This cough silencer was developed by leading researchers in the hunting community to enable outdoorspersons to cough silently and thus avoid scaring away a woodland creature before the outdoorsperson has the opportunity to blow it into tiny furred smithereens.
The beauty of this silencer is that it is -- like pretty much everything your serious outdoorsperson owns, including his dentures -- painted in camouflage, which means it is completely invisible to the naked eye, making it ideal for use in movie theaters, libraries, funerals, etc. Many top male ballet dancers carry this cough silencer when they perform. That is the bulge you are seeing.
