Of Wookies

Two humorous incidents.
So as Flopper is lifting Eli into the the air after singing to him in an attempt to encourage him to do jazz paws he says to me.

"Wouldn't it be weird if there were creatures with dog-like intelligence that walked on their hind legs ? You know like Wookies"

To which I indignantly reply. "Chewbacca was 200 years old and a mechanical genius."

"Well why doesn't he speak?"

"Because he doesn't have the right shaped vocal chords and the Wookies are a proud people. He speaks Wookie."

"He could at least speak in morse code. Ahh ah ah Ahh ah ah. If wookies are in my country, they should speak my language. What next? Signs in the grocery store in Wookie?"
