The Gods Must Be Crazy

Have you ever seen the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy? It was made in the '80s and one of the things I remember about it is that many of the characters spoke to each other using a language where you make clicks and clucks with your tongue. Meredith must be auditioning for the remake.

Charlie had his static-y, broken transistor radio speak and now Mere has this. I'm pretty impressed that she has the ability to make these sounds! As a grown up, I can't even whistle and here she is trying to communicate with us making clicking sounds that only she knows what they mean.

I hope to get it on video, but she is so quick about it I'm not sure if that will happen or not. We'll see. Charlie started out with making his noises just every once in a while and then he moved on to doing it all the time. If you're familiar with the !Kung language, maybe you'll be able to translate for us!
