Writer, CP and all around useful lady RC Lewis asked me the origin of brouhaha last week. Great question -- with a very interesting answer!
So, my English speaking friends are probably aware that pigs say "oink," sheep go "baa," and horses are known for their "neigh." But did you know that animals sound different in other languages? In French, for example, the dog says, "Ouaf! Ouaf!" and the pig says, "Groin! Groin!" (I'm resisting a VMA joke, b/c my mom wants me to work on being nicer).
And here's a great video for you of animal noises from around the world. Just because it exists.
