Cross cultural delights: Cockadoodledoo = Quiquiriquí

Ok, so I am unashamedly unoriginal. Pretty much all of the directing I do to cool things on the internet come from GOOD magazine blog. (GOOD magazine is a cool pop culture/social issues magazine whose subscription profits go entirely to charitable non-profits.) But this was just too cool to not mention.

One of the most fascinating and hilarious things about crossing language barriers in other cultures is the discovery that even sounds such as animal sounds, cars and trains, and even expletives such as "Ouch!" are different in other languages. This website complies them all in a thrilling audio/visual interactive experience. (South Korea's is my favorite every time.)

Have fun!
