Oh gosh that is so hysterical - what you've done is so funny - I love it.

Hehe, that reminds me of a pronunciation exercise on my German language cd: das rosarote Rhinozeros.

I my goodness, who would have thought he'd be hot pink.

Roberto said...

I like the pink rhinoceroses!...Have you listened to Rinôçérôse?....

Martina said...

thlol, *bg* ... I am wondering right now if you know the novel ... . I simply had to show the rhino's beauty in all its brilliant colour!

kobico, this is clearly a very useful sentence in your conversations with Germans! 8-)
But hey, you learn how to pronounce ... eh .. what? The r's? The o's?

Joan Elizabeth, ah, thank you - "hot pink" was what I was looking for. Colours are not easy ...

Roberto, no I never had but now I surely will ...

kobico said...

The r's. Americans can't pronounce the German r sound.

-me said...

M - I do not know these novels. Did you read all 5 while you were fishing?

there seems to be something vaguely sinister in them. . . no?

ana barata said...

Pink is one of my colors! And even a big animal like this one looks cute in pink! Pretty in pink!

Martina said...

donnie, how do you know it's a lady rhino?

Zé o Caçador, everytime I take these kind of photos I think of you. I think: oh, how the caçador would like this!

kobico, I didn't know there is a German "r". Since depending where in Germany you live there are different types of r's. Where I grew up even the neighbouring village has a different r. Ha, Wikipedia says: Im Deutschen gibt es fünf verschiedene Möglichkeiten der Aussprache des /r/.

So, really, you can't pronounce it wrong, ;-). Just say you are from Bavaria ... .


-me, no I did only manage the first three. Then I had to read something more down-to-earth. I finished the fourth novel this week and am reading the fifth right now. Sinister - parts of it, yes. Parts are like a fever dream. Parts are like being on drugs. Parts are just nice. Parts are very very boring. Very heterogeneous.

ana barata, ha, you would have liked the black T-Shirts with the really huge pink rhino on front.
