fuck-you lizard by marielitaaa fuck-you lizard by marielitaaa
wiktionary: Named "Fuck-you lizard" during the Vietnam War, as the lizard's cry sounds like "fuck you." The "fuck" sound is quite clear and short in duration, followed by about a 1/2-second pause and the "you" elongated.

I read once in Tumblr's "Did You Know?" that the American troops nicknamed that lizard the "Fuck You Lizard" because it seemed to be saying that :XD: So as the AmeViet shipper that I am, I imagined Vietnam gave one of those lizards to America since he seemed to like it so much. She seems not to get the joke though :giggle:

The lizard specifically is a gecko called the Tokay gecko

We call it tukÚ here after its call but it never crossed my mind that it sounded like the expletive.

Don't really support AmeViet (heck, that coupling's not in the pairings section in the Hetalia archives as far as I know), but this is just too cute. =D
