Just a Thought

The Hungarian language, Magyar, resembles Finnish, Your Honor, though its lack of vowels could be attributed to them having been snatched by the wind when the horse-mounted nomad warriors shouted to one another. Allow me to quote Illino Tepius, a Byzantine traveler, who wrote in 1232 that “when Hungarians speak, there is a wind like whistle that propels the words forward, as if they never dismounted.”
—Andrei Codrescu/The Blood Countess
