How do I make a digital self-destructing Mission: Impossible tape?

I want to build a device that will play an audio file once and only once - basically the self-destructing tape from Mission: Impossible, but updated to the digital age. Bonus points for a setup that ends with an audible sizzle and a puff of smoke, yet isn't a federal offense to put through the USPS. Is it possible to do this with a microcontroller like Arduino or Raspberry Pi? I'm a complete beginner to this kind of 'Maker' stuff, so I'm aware I may not even be asking the right questions. Here's a link to instructions about an analog version: http://ask.metafilter.com/180544/in-5-seconds
