BOR-R-R-K book-book-book, BOR-R-R-R-K book-book-book-book.... (That's my interpretation of chook language for "hi there") Wow, this sure is one popular spot, I see. Guess it's not surprising, so many people are into chooks. Apparently there are over 24 billion of them in the world, or more than 3 for every person. I've got 4 of 'em myself, but wouldn't have a clue what breed they are or anything, bit of a mixture of everything I'd say, just mangy old scavenging backyard chooks, don't hardly lay any eggs, I'm thinking of giving 'em the chop... Anyways, I recently discovered that Americans, maybe even Brits, don't call them chooks. Seems it's mainly an Aussie thing. Well, I'm on a mission to get the name "chooks" popularised throughout the English-speaking world. Why? Because it's such a great name for them! I mean, it seems linguistically impoverished to me, not to be able to call them chooks. It's so apt! When you call them, you go: "he-e-e-ere, chook-chook-chook-chook!" It just suits them down to the ground! They're chooks! The name just fits! Well, best for now, B-O-O-ORK book-book... CHOOK!
