Help him out guys, that guinea pig must pay!

A Crystal Palace man, who must remain nameless for legal reasons, started to speak fluently in the K'Naggit language of the Bakongo people of Angola when a boil on his backside burst. His wife Susan, a language teacher, thought she recognised some words he shouted, and with foresight tape-recorded the utterances and played them to a colleague who spoke the language.

Although the man had no knowledge of African tribal languages, on the tape he can be clearly heard saying "Ngugga sporf tutu yaah mffuuug kongo raaas", which means "This guinea pig has eaten most of my peanuts", and "Waatussi no no ffunginell aaah barrrstaarrdd", which translates as "Get your thieving hands off my bullock, you rapscallion".

This kind of instant language-finding is not unknown to science; last year a Leistershire builder dropped a paving stone on his hand and could speak Polish fluently for 4 days.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
