Hmmm, having further studied this youtube video, I have to admit that it does sounds rather like "mine mine mine". But I am unwilling to concede this just yet. Have another look and imagine that they just have very strong Australian accents....... Does anyone see where I'm coming from here?
Ok guys, I need some help, can you help settle a long-term argument between me and steve? Do the seagulls in Disney's film Finding Nemo shout "mate mate mate" (with aussie accents -phonetically "mite mite mite") or "mine mine mine"?!!!
Please leave a comment below to vote, all opinions welcomed. I will of course publish the results of this vote if you all agree with me.
You know its "mate". Ever hear an Aussie say anything else?
Setting: Kew gardens, by the big duck pond. Freya, sitting on a bench admiring the ducklings, is approached by a very sweet looking grandma dressed in floral print and orthopedic shoes.
Grandma: Oh aren't the ducklings adorable, what sort of duck do you think they are?
Freya: I'm not sure, but they're very cute aren't they? (etc, this innocent duck-based conversation continues for around 5 mins)
Grandma: I was down here the other day watching some lovely coots building a lovely nest...
Grandma: They were terribly busy, collecting lovely twigs, catching lovely bugs....
Grandma: ...when all of a sudden they started (grandma's voice goes low and sadistic) they started having SEX (yelled) - MWAH HA HA HA HA
I'm not sure if I should really be so disturbed by pensioners using the S word, and I'm sure her voice wasn't really low and sadistic (though the semi-evil laugh was genuine enough), it just seemed such a strange observation to share, with a random stranger, in a park....? Am I a granny-prude?! OR was she trying to be hip with da kids? Who knows, I think it might just be easier to watch the free wildlife porn than learning how to using the inter-magingey-net-a-ma-doodle... We all gotta get our kicks somewhere.....
I just stumbled across this blog (http://fuckyoupenguin.blogspot.com/) and it's hilarious. I'm not exactly sure what the animals have done to provoke such wrath, but hey, they do gratuitously milk their cuteness sometimes, little f**kers.
Living in London, I often (over)hear many entertaining conversations that have got to be worth sharing....there will probably also be one or two cool quotes, videos and links too.
Update on profile: Quite frankly I'm failing miserably at the "overheard conversations" thing. Sorry. Feel free to email me with any entertaining conversations you have overheard. In the meantime, welcome to my somewhat random mishmash blog. Yeah.
