If we spring 500 kazoos on them at an event and THEN find out they aren't
period, we just shrug and say "Sure is fun, tho, eh?" But if we learn they
aren't period, and we give them out, we are knowingly agents of Evil. It's
not easy to justify Evil; you need to demonstrate that you caused a LOT of

(I'm prepared to grant that 500 kazoo players might be enough Chaos;  but
I would rather not cause Evil in the first place.)

So if we CAN find period instruments that will have the same riotous
effect, we must follow that path, for although Chaos is desirable, so too
is Good.
