We have been tasked, Enthusiasts. FoTotD (and novelist and one of the only New York Times columnists that doesn’t make me want to drown myself in a river) Jenny Boylan asks for our ears. Here is the question before us:
What is that noise at 00:22?
Dr. Boylan believes it to be a dog’s bark; her clue being that her dog–and we are assured that this is a good dog, a truthful dog–responds to the sound as though it were another dog.
Others, with far paltrier resumes and dogs that can fairly be called liars, have offered that the sound is that of the wooden leg of a chair or stool barking across a similarly wooden floor.
So now, as with all of my homework, I will let you do it. Whaddya think?
