1) From: PAUL RIFKIN
Not to give anyone the bird, but isn't it "pidgin Deutsch" not pigeon Deutsch?

The word pidgin, formerly also spelled pigion, derives from a Chinese
Pidgin English pronunciation of business.[5] Originally used to
describe Chinese Pidgin English, it was later generalized to refer to
any pidgin.[6] Pidgin may also be used as the specific name for a
local pidgin in places where they are spoken. For example, the name of
Tok Pisin derives from the English words talk pidgin, and its speakers
usually refer to it simply as "Pidgin" when speaking English.[citation
needed]
The term jargon has also been used to describe pidgins, and is found
in the names of some pidgins such as Chinook Jargon. In this context,
linguists today use jargon to denote a particularly rudimentary type
of pidgin;[7] however, this usage is rather rare, and the term jargon
most often refers to the words particular to a given profession.

Plus it's more fun to say pigeon and talk about birds than say pidgin and be
all korrekt and everything.  :)

5) From: Brian Kamnetz
Actually, I had to look up the spelling of "pigeon" (What? No "D"?),
so I sure was unaware that there was another similar word that I also
didn't know how to spell. And besides, "Vogeldeutsch", which most
likely is pidgin, doesn't make any sense at all except as in reference
to "pigeon Deutsch"....
I'm surprised we didn't hear from Ray on this topic, hopefully with
his authentic Deutsch keyboard.... must have been too tied up with his
busted Carpeso Leaks expresso maker.... or maybe simply too disgusted
at the "Deutsch", pigeon, pidgin, or otherwise, to get involved.

I was even going to look up the German version of "chirp chirp" but got
lazy.  It's something like "piep piep", but I can't find it online.
Yeah, Ray!  Wie bist Du?  WO bist du?  We've had German conversations
before, but it was before I took a workload-related hiatus from diese Liste.

FWIW, this is a pretty cool onomatopoeia site:http://www.bzzzpeek.com/however, it's all audio and not printed, so I still have no idea on  
the german tweet sound, especially since that one has pretty lousy  
recording.
Flash required, btw.

I'm trying to think of the comedian who had fun with languages and made-up
words, etc.  Was it Sid Caesar?
He was so funny.

Let's not forget Al Kelly,  sidekick of Joey Adams and masterful 
double-talker, and the great Prof. Irwin Cory..
Almost forgot Danny Kaye, who was actually quite fluent in Chinese...
