One of my local television stations will be running Best of Show this weekend. In one of the scenes in the trailer, Fred Willard's Mr. Announcer Guy character remarks to the effect that dogs of all nationalities still bark the same way, which I suppose is true.
However, Fred's assertion begs the question: do people of all nationalities hear the barking the same way? In the good ol' US of A, we tend to hear either "Arf" or "Bow-wow"; since the make-up of the folks who frequent this forum tends to be cosmopolitan, I thought that it might be instructive to post this most burning of questions here.
Please do not let the facts that this is Saint Patrick's Day, my father's mother was born in Ireland, and my local Safeway had Guinness Extra Stout on sale influence in any way your decision to participate.
