    Anyone know Jejumal? I’m curious as to what the elephant is saying.

    • Glen Able says:

      The elephant initially says an informal “Howdy!”  The next thing he says is already translated in the cartoon.

      (I don’t speak Jejumal – I just took a guess that it was researched from wikipedia and took a look there)

      • strangefriend says:

         Well, Tom screwed up.  Jejumal is Korean, just a dialect of the Jeju Island.

        • SheriffFatman says:

          Wikipedia [normal caveats apply] says that it and the mainland dialects are more or less mutually unintelligible, and UNESCO considers it a separate language.

        • KWillets says:

          It does differ substantially from mainland Korean.  Historically the island has been isolated enough to maintain a separate language.

          If he wanted a safe bet, he could have picked Cia-Cia.  The concept of a non-Korean language being written in Hangul has captured some attention in the country.

    • Just_Ok says:

      The elephant says he is getting underpaid, and is thinking of packing his trunk and leaving.

    a priest, a nun, and a rabbi walk into a bar.  the bartender says “what is this, a joke?”

  4. t00mer says:

    Guernica, minus assorted scribbles equals Doug.

    Nice.

    The bear thing reminds me of the time Cory showed us lolcatted pictures of the Large Hadron Collider
