Chirrup!

By Goggz
"Chirrup", said one marmot to the other, meaning "what are those things?"

The other chewed contemplatively, before quietly replying "Zzzeeeeppp!!", but unfortunately Babelfish didn't have a translation for that, so we'll never know what it said...

Meanwhile, I was frantically trying to get far enough away from them to get the girls in the frame before they moved off or the marmots got bored... just made it in time Smile

Cheers, Goggz

Remember that in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the origin of the babelfish), it was the mice who were actually running everything on planet Earth. Look at those faces...
