Two years ago, we were having Thanksgiving dinner at my house, and my little cousin was there, as was his Grandmother. Anyway, his Grandmother wanted to show off how smart the little tyke was having him make the sounds of the animals she named. So she started off with easy ones, what sound does a cow make? What sound does a sheep make? What sound does a dog make? This went on for about 5 minutes, getting less and less cute with each animal. My father had an idea--ask him to make the noise of a silent animal. So he says "What sound does a turtle make?" Without missing a beat, my cousin shouts.... "COWABUNGA, DUDE!!!!!"
