SOME Fijian fans decided to try out crabs in a particular restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. Crabs chosen, they waited in anticipation of the meal. Crabs are brought out and it was the waiter's turn to communicate to the ladies. He brought boards and utensils.

"Urgh," he says pointing to the unshelled crab. "Urgh," he adds and points from the crab to the board.

"Ahhh," the ladies nod. "Urgh," he points to a utensil.

"Urgh, urgh, urgh, urgh," he adds while pointing to the crab and proceeds to act like his thumping or nailing something. The ladies are going ahh or ahahaha by this stage.

That's the language of ahh or urgh, sometimes its understood, sometimes its disastrous.
