... is a quote from a Pate Biscuit story (aka Glyn Nicholas on the Big Gig)
And is now apparently the official noise that whales make.
I'm sure most parents will have been in the situation of going through a book of animals and making all the noises with the child. And there are some animals that don't seem to have a noise. So we jokingly quoted Pate.... and the Crankmaster was saying it over and over until bedtime. It was so hard to keep a straight face.
Usually our default animal noise is gronk. A friend told me that giraffes say "well, hello there" and Tops decided that camels say "It's a lovely day".
Anyone got any other animal noise suggestions?
