Posted by Dalene on Sunday, April 25, 2010,

What exactly does 'the sound of one hand clapping' sound like? I imagine it to be something like this:

Smack. "Ouch".

There are many differentiations - pretty much any sound made by a hand connecting loudly with someone's face... and then, of course, the yelp of pain coming from the slapee*.

How do you step from a 100ft pole?
