da da da da da da?

Lynn over at help I work with children has reflected on the following clip:

Personally it made me think of the times when we use words without meaning - just using the force of our voices to get across a point, or some dense jargon, not realising that to others it sounds just like da da da da da da da.

That's using it as an analogy, of course - as it is, it's a marvellous example of mimicry.

(I also couldn't help noticing the socks!)

Check out Lynn's reflections here.

Absolutely enchanting! They clearly know what they are 'talking' about.
Doesn't it make you wonder just how much we need actual words?
Shakespeare! Who he?

@ Ray - whatever they are talking about, it clearly involves some leg waving!

@ Lynn - I fiddle with the width on the html embed code - I changed the frame width from 560 to 490, I think! Blessings to you too :)

How wonderful! A conversation consisting of one syllable manages to convey so much. Our politicians use many more syllables to convey less. Thank you for this delight.
