aaargh plop
 n.— «Scientists may just be learning what is already common knowledge among Indonesian villagers. Peter Roeder, a consultant for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, says locals have an onomatopoeic name for bird flu “that sounds like ‘plop,’ the sound of a chicken hitting the ground when it falls out of a tree. They also have a name for the cat form of avian flu—‘aargh plop’—because cats make a screaming noise before they fall out of the tree.”» —“Can cats spread avian flu?” Nature (U.K.) Mar. 6, 2006.
