Cute Overload :D
Let’s call the whole thing off!
You say ribbit, I say croak, you say peep-peep-peeper,
I say… …Bud – weis – er.
but what does the fox say?
“Pike off, I’m workin here.”
En français (in French), la grenouille dit: COÂÂ-COÂÂ
And there’s the Puerto Rican: Coqui Coqui
As long as they are in my water garden I don’t really care what they say ..
It’s nice listening to them at night .. but I prefer if they don’t *croak*
Thai frog: “Op op… oppa gangnam style!”
David Sedaris’s hilarious “Six to Eight Black Men” includes discussions with people from different countries about the sounds their animals make. I hope this wonderful artist gets inspired to make more posters–this one is fantastic.
Some people have WAY too much free time……..
Germans can’t tell frogs from ducks.
Yes, more posters would be awesome, I love hearing how different countries envision their animals.
Perhaps one for dogs? I’m trying to think of the language that translates barking as “hau-hau” but I forget.
Ah yes, our tiny amphibian with the mighty lungs! But I’ve always thought “regular” frogs sound like “rocco rocco”
He’s done loads, check http://chapmangamo.tumblr.com/
This is delightful and informative. Thank you.
Cool, thank you!
They all sound accurate! Agree it’s awesome poster, and want more, too!
Personally, I’m GLAD he used his time this way since I think it’s cooooooooool!
Hungarian + French = Aristopanes’ Frogs
Good news, there is more! I found his “dog” poster: http://chapmangamo.tumblr.com/post/58440651720/worldwide-woofs-how-to-sound-like-a-dog-in-14
and apparently there are others (Mods, hope it’s OK to post this link – Smarty).
Poor fox… http://www.eatliver.com/i.php?n=11212
I was thinking about that play – my version translates it thusly: Breck a keck keck korax korax. Quite a mouthful for a frog.
How deep is a frog pond? Knee deep!!!
