In case it wasn't understood, that was onomatopoeia for a Spanish kiss.;)
Thanks for the follow-up. I thought it was your imitation of a cat saying moar, and I had no more to offer at this time.
Do you have something to offer now that you know???Hey, you don't have to answer. ;)It's interesting that kisses sound different in different languages, don't you think? Look at what I found. It made me remember that MUA! is the tender form of kissing while CHUICK! is more of the mushy romantic type. But look at the variety in other languages. Wow! Gosh, it was a long week at work...
LOL!To the second part of your reply, I can't think of any way that kissing sounds are written in English. You might see *smack* in a cartoon bubble, but that's all I can think of.
Yeah, I guess so. But that seems like *smack*, if you know what I mean.The only written English thing I can think I can think of is X, XX, XXX, ... or more commonly these days, XOXO.
Yeah, but those aren't onomatopoeic.But we'll have to leave it there, looking up those Xs is pointing to porn sites. Now if Santorum or Romney were to be elected, it would lead to some biblical/ Book of Mormon story about crucifixion.
Heh. Some more selective Googling led me to this and this, which were pretty interesting.
