  • I heard an interview with him about that on RN, frindley. It was funny as all get-out.

  • I'm with rolig. "Grow a pair of ovaries." "That'll fertilise your eggs!"

  • and what about pussywhipped?

  • When the French first landed on Australian soil they attempted (in a kind of early "ethnomusicology") to notate the songs and "war cries" of the Aborigines, including the famous cooee. I've seen the results, beautifully presented in music copperplate, with the words written in a sort of French phonology, e.g. "couille" for cooee. The Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe tells a funny story about perfecting his pronunciation for a presentation about all this to a French audience. The nice librarian at the embassy who was helping him failed to mention that "couilles" in fact means balls.

  • Well, okay--must've not read it carefully enough--but I think it's hilarious that someone wrote it out in a music staff. :)

  • I thought I saw in the article that it's not in fact eligible for copyright.

  • I love that Wikipedia link, though, because it has the yell written out as an actual musical score. Hee! Apparently it's been copyrighted. And if you try to sing it, you'll come out with just the right yell. Ululating sounds a bit different, IMHO.

  • I have always understood Tarzan to ululate.

    August 25, 2008

  • Uh, no. Apparently it's just called a Tarzan yell.

    August 25, 2008

  • Warble?

    August 25, 2008

  • Well, yeah. But I mean that noise Tarzan makes.

  • Is there a better verb for that thing Tarzan does?

  • c_b, I lost you at "yodeling". :-P

    August 25, 2008

  • Dude, I completely nailed my drum solo the other day. I am massively pussified. *thumping chest and yodeling*

    August 24, 2008

  • I absolutely agree, c_b and John. Let's all start celebrating womanly words and phrases! Instead of saying, "That'll put hair on your chest!" we could say, "That'll give you breasts!" This could be a truly ovular discussion.

    August 24, 2008

  • Thanks, Shevek, you saved me the trouble. :)

    I do the same thing, John, with a slightly different word:

    Joe's a Navy SEAL now! He's got a huge pair of ovaries, that's for damn sure.

    August 24, 2008

  • I like the idea of turning pussy on its head, making it a compliment and a metaphor for strength.

    "By the time Joe finished SEAL training, he was a real pussy. The guy could bench 240!"

    August 24, 2008

  • Yes you were. Pussy as an insult is metaphorical, referring to the literal idiomatic meaning of female genitalia.

    August 24, 2008

  • Get your mind out of the gutter. I wasn't talking about that kind of pussy. =O.O=

    August 24, 2008

  • Pussies are in fact muscular and strong. Just think what they have to put up with! Scrotum is a much better insult. They're thin, weak, and easily shrivel up under pressure. Calling something a pussy should be a compliment!

    August 24, 2008

  • A verb denoting turning a person or a thing into an effeminate pussy.

    "Joe used to be a real man before he got married, but his shrew of a wife completely pussified him." - renumeratedfrog, 2008
