For modellers, there is some great info further down on scratchbuilding this piece of germ warfare.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

The scratchbuild piece is also a nice addition- thanks for finding it!
