Answering the Important Questions About Animal Noises September 22, 2013

Posted by geoff in News.

When the kids were little we went through the standard litany of “What does the cow say?” “Moo!” type questions. One day I stumped my oldest with:

Me: “What does the giraffe say?”

He: “?????”

Me: [in falsetto] “Blublublublublublublublu!!!!”

That became a family staple. Following the same sort of mental machinations, two talk show hosts from Norway cashed in a favor with a video production company to answer the important question: “What does the fox say?”

44 million views thus far.

H/T: My daughter the cyberflipper.

I enjoyed that, Geoff.
Too bad my grandkids are too old for me to fool them with the giraffe sound.

Skinbad still has a chance.

We have a family of foxes in my highly developed suburban neighborhood. I have only heard a bark once, it was an ‘OH CRAP’ noise the young one made when he came trucking around the corner of my house and saw me standing there. I was just as surprised as he was.

Duh. Everybody knows that.

“A couple of you

Here’s a bunch of Geezers, watching the Fox video.
This cracks me up.
