Southern Dialect Goose
Marcus: Honk, honk, honk -
Cyndi: What's the matter, Marcus? Do you have a cold?
Marcus: No. I'm practicing my honks.
Cyndi: Oh, you're on the driving kick again and you're pretending to be a car horn?
Marcus: Of course not. All of you made fun of me when I insisted I can speak fluent goose. (Late for a Recital ) You insisted geese honk and don't have a second language, so I'm practicing my honking to see if they understand me any better. I doubt it, but I'm willing to try since we're going to have more geese than this arriving soon for the cold weather.
Cyndi: You do know today is Flashback Friday and you honking does not constitute a flashback?
Marcus: It's a flashback for me. I'm remembering all those great conversations I've had with geese.
Cyndi: And I'm remembering all the delusions you're posted about speaking geese ... er, goose. You know, bird! (Swiss Cheese Theory. Marcus Two Step. Mister I Speak Geese. A Honkless Holiday. Translating Goose to Dog. Giggle of Goose Gaggle. Marcus Speaks Geese.)
Marcus: Hey, thanks for gathering our conversations together so I can go back and review them. It will make it easier to compare results over time. I'll be very surprised if they can understand me when I honk, but if I work on my accent, it should work.
Cyndi: Of course, that's it! You have to honk in the same dialect as the arriving geese and most of them don't speak with a Southern accent.
Marcus: I'm glad you understand. The rest of the Funny Farmers think I'm off my trolley.
Cyndi: You speak geese with a Southern drawl. What's not to understand? **cough, cough**
Marcus: Are you okay? You haven't caught the cold I don't have, have you?
Cyndi: No, no, I'm fine, just have a goose feather tickling my funny bone.
