Have you ever heard your pet making noises, and wished that you could figure out what he/she was saying?!?
As it turns out, A LOT of people want to know what animals say. So instead of just trying to guess, behavioral biologists from the University of Zurich observed the banded mongoose in Uganda, and noticed that their noises sound like Morse code.
Basing the mongoose's speech on the vowel and consonant order of the human language, doctoral student David Jansen revealed:
This is where we'd write the signature Tim Allen grunt with a question mark after it, if we had any clue how to express it in written form!
To make up for it, we've included a video (above) with some of Tim Allen's classic grunt noises, which you may get to see again on TV in 2011.
Sources say that Tim Allen has been taking meetings with sitcom writer-producers, including Greg Daniels, of The Office and Parks and Recreation fame.
It'd be nice to see non-Buzz Lightyear Tim Allen make a comeback. He NEEDS one after he made that movie Crazy On The Outside, which NOBODY watched, and which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray exclusively at douchebaglandTarget.
