What the Fox [Marijuana] Really Says!

So you’ve seen the video, What Does the Fox Say, right?

After my friends started talking about it, I decided I needed more information. Where would I go—except to YouTube, my secret best friend that has saved me from looking like an ancient relic if I ask dumb questions of my music-savvy children?

What I saw was crazy!! (Ok, I’m taking into account that this was not written in the United States where I reside, so I gave a bit of latitude for cultural differences.) But I was quite surprised to learn that while the Norwegians hear the cow saying moo like I do, they hear the fox saying the strangest things—like Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!  Wow…what an interpretation!

What the Fox Seems to Say

This great little ditty really gets stuck in your head when you first hear it! Within moments, you decide you need to share it with your preschool friends and every child in a 100 mile radius because this is what animals sound like. It’s kind of like the Alphabet Song. Or maybe a modern day version of Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear written by Bill Martin and illustrated by Eric Carle back in 1991. In fact, I used to read that book to my own children and struggle through sounding like a flamingo, a peacock and a walrus. But this new song teaches me how to sound like a fox.

What the Fox Really Says

Until recently, I had never in the past wondered to myself, “What Does the Fox Say?” But after singing this for several weeks, one of my music-savvy children mentioned that she saw the musicians on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. And then the truth came tumbling out about what the Fox really says.

Did you know that in Norway “fox” means marijuana? MIND BLOWN!! Now this wacky video makes so much sense.

The idea that the fox says wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow and hatee-hatee-hatee-ho (never mind something as crazy as tchoff- tchoff- tchoffo- tchoffo- tchoff) becomes perfectly clear. Anyone on marijuana knows he will hear different things. Now I’m not sure what to think about this seemingly innocent, fun video. I guess the joke is really on us when we teach it to our children.
