What is that big woodpecker called?

He looks like a woodpecker!

He’s quite big and has a red head.


Hello! I’m looking for my son.
Have you seen him anywhere?

(zhё nwėtth - sort of)

His jacket is red and he’s sort of big.


Where did you pop up from?
(Where have you been? Lit-emerge)

I was staying around Wausau. I visited my aunt.

Oh. How is she? (lit-how is she living?)

She’s doing good.
She says hi. (lit-sends her handshake)

Oh, sometime, if it’s meant to be, I’ll see her.


And you, how much do you weigh?

I don’t know, I never weigh myself.

Me too, I never weigh myself since I got fat.
