Question: What are your top five (or ten) favourite onomatopoeia?

Holy shit, it must be list week. This will be the fourth list in a row. Franz Liszt would be so proud!

(Gets punched in face by ghost of Franz Liszt.)

Top Ten Ghost Punches

I mean...

Top Ten Favorite Onomatopoeia

10) Plop (the sound of plopping)
9) Vroom (the sound of hurrying)
8) Omnomnom (the sound of shark pictures)
7) Bang (what I do to your precious female family members)
6) Cliché (the sound of making a printing press plate with common phrases)
5) Quiquiriqui (Cock-a-doodle-do in some Latin countries)
4) Blimp (the sound of smacking a blimp)
3) Bumblebee (yep, that's supposed to be the sound it makes)
2) Poop (originally the sound of a horn. A bum horn.)
1) Marauder (from the French 'maraud', the sound a horny cat makes)

Short Answer: For the record, you do not want to be haunted by the ghost of Franz Liszt. That dude was scary looking.
