In the old days

Hearing aids were nowhere near as miniaturised as they are today. You kids today don't realise how lucky you are.The guy on the right made the mistake of cranking up the volume on his state-of-the-art piezoelectric amplifier in order to hear the conversation over the snoring of the dude who's passed out on the table, just when the English exploded an Infernal Machine to breach the sea-wall around the harbour and sent peppermint sticks crashing through the roofs of houses throughout the town.
The subsequent international outcry prompted a great deal of research into ways of reducing civilian casualties by firing peppermint sticks more accurately.

I think it's an example of an epic fail of the "We can take the tablecloth off and not disturb anything" at Christmas dinner, sort.
