Prior to the birth of Joanne Keyes; The loudest noise ever recorded was produced when the island-volcano Krakatoa, in the Sunda Strait between Sumatra and Java, Indonesia, exploded in an eruption on August 27, 1883. The sound – up to 26 times the power of the largest ever H-bomb test – was heard 5,000 km (3,100 miles) away and was estimated to have been heard over 80% of the Earth's surface. Since the birth of Miss Keyes however this pales into insignificance. It is thought that recently discovered cracks in the main supporting braces of the Hoover dam are a result of the sound pressure from Miss Keyes’ laugh, and scientists fear that this is only the tip of the iceberg. Harvard University head of physics; Dr Rupert Moffenwafflebottle had this to say; “I believe the recent near disaster in Arizona was only a warning about what we can expect, it is our belief that the event leading up to Miss Keyes last eruption was merely a tremor caused by a mildly amusing TV program. One day, maybe tomorrow, maybe in 10 years time, something will tickle her funny bone and it will almost certainly be the end of the Earth, at least as we know it today” The US Army have been performing some tests with Miss Keyes, with a view to using her as an alternative to atomic weapons, below is a short video clip from these tests.
