For this definition, we will focus on a transverse flute.

Transverse flutes are medium-long, thin, and hollow. Most modern flutes are made of silver or other metals. They are comprised of 3 parts: A headjoint, a midjoint, and a footjoint. The headjoint holds the mouthpiece. The midjoint has nearly all the keys. The footjoint contains the rest of the keys. At first glance, the keys on a flute may seem overwhelming and confusing, but after a year or two of practice, you will understand them. A special extra joint can also be purchased to aid a flute in playing lower notes.

Flutes are in concert pitch, meaning that when playing a band, you do not need to transpose.

Flutes are the only woodwind with sound produced by the vibration of air, as opposed to a reed. Because of this, experienced or moderately-experience flautists can play very beautiful tones. However, inexperienced flutists can end up sounding squeaky or harsh.
As other definitions say flutes can make excellent weapons, although I prefer the long, thin, blunt object approach. The many holes from the keys do not lend the flute well to a blowgun.

If you play flute, you are very cool!
Wow, flutes, you played your part beautifully!

A flipping of the syllables in stupid, invented by first-graders in that blissful year where the word stupid is a horrible swear.
Person 1: "That's so stupid!"
Person 2: "Oh my gosh, what did you just call it?"
Person 1: "Oh, sorry, it's so pidstu, then."
