1 Answer 1


Assuming you mean a stream of gas (a steam of gas makes no sense) my answer is


There are several types of whistle, all operated by a stream of gas.
People can find any of them annoying, particularly the 3rd one.

A referee's whistle (with or without a rolling pea).
A steam engine's whistle (perhaps this is why you wrote "steam").
A sound made by a person's mouth parts (lips or tongue).
A sound made by the wind through narrow obstructions.
A tin whistle (a musical instrument) also known as a penny whistle.

We get penny from the last one.
