I thought you were going to talk about Chicken! <> Anyway, anyone with any exposure to chooks would know that "bwark" (tho I've always spelt it as "brark") has negative meaning! (Tho mayhaps there's an Australian dialect of Chikenese, perhaps better called "Chookese".) But yeah, it sounds to me like a joke. -- Tristan.
