    hey — what do the Fr. Canadyuns or the Outrageux Frawnsche say a goat says???
    Y’know, how the “Mericun version of a rooster’s call is “cock-a-doodle-doo” but the Japonais say s’thing very different?

    I’ve forgotten, Gigi, whether you’re from the Frozen Northside or from la belle France itself?

    avec le paix,
