Cantonese. Mandarin can be quite beautiful in song, but Cantonese just sounds like nails scratching on chalkboard to me and seems like it's always shouted.

I heard an Asian language in Walmart one day that made me turn around to see what was going on. I thought the woman was verbally abusing her children and that violence was on its way.

How puzzling it was to me to see a family apparently happily shopping.

I don't tell my neighbors of German ancestry but German always gives me the giggles.

Some forms of Spanish must be the language of the Angels.
