After the positive response of my UREMDURDRDURDURDRDRDUR post yesterday, I wanted to revisit the topic of funny sounds you hear in the real world, and the fun ways to spell them out.
The main reason this idea went from one simple post into a theme was because of this picture:
When I first saw this picture, I laughed for a long, long time. Tears were streaming from my eyes. My girlfriend thought I was delirious... (and she didn't think it was as funny as I did...) I had flashbacks of my dog Ozzie doing this when I was 5 years old. I could see him in my imagination, attacking the sprinklers, and what better way to describe the noise than WHARRGARBL?
WHARRGARBL can also be used to illustrate the sound one makes while gargling mouthwash, but there is no way to make an attractive picture of that. You can just remember this when you're swishing and about to gargle. Try not to choke too much...
You could pretty much take any action from a dog, and turn it into a funny spelling in one way or another. For example:
To all the doggies out there, beware of humans with a camera and a twisted sense of humor. We will exploit your funny faces, and turn you into demotivational posters. This is especially true for pugs or other cockeyed canines...
Sometimes it's not what you hear at the moment, but what you see. When I watch Fox News and listen to the pundits who love to hear themselves talk, and cater to idiots who will believe any conspiracy theory you throw at them, I see this:
Eyjafjallajökull made headlines in the news. As you can see, it also became a pop culture topic on "Who wants to be a millionaire." I wonder if this was the million-dollar question, or one of the lower-level ones? Either way, I doubt this dude progressed beyond this stumper.
That is, unless he's from Iceland. For some reason, I'm doubting it.
What other fun non-word words can you think of? Please feel free to share with the community by leaving a comment below.
