it's weird that one of the first few things we teach new humans (babies) is what animals say. i don't understand how that is all that important. i mean, i'm all for kids learning things. i support that. but i don't know how much i have benefitted from knowing that pigs say oink. furthermore, i don't think i've ever heard a pig say oink. all the ones i've encountered just make weird gasping/choking/farting/snorting noises. maybe we should be teaching piglets what pigs say.
