has anyone else attempted to replicate the sound? does it perhaps also remind you of something else? Love the innuendos of the world. Its interesting that they "purr" at similar frequencies and potency to cats. Which happen to purr at the exact frequency to promote bone and cell growth/healing and repair.

another one that does not fall into the breaking news category would be Mike Rowe and dirty jobs. He goes to a winery and the hole in the side of the barrel must be burned to set the wood and the hole is named a "bunghole". At which point when he figures it out he proceeds to use the word a million times whilst burning it lol.
