The Daily Probe Reports from the
Sovereign Apartment Nation of Travistan



25% of Travistani Citizens Don't Speak the Language

TRAVAMABAD (DPI) - The Travistani central government released a surprising report today concluding that 25% of the population of the apartment-nation does not speak the primary Travanese dialect. The tongue, though not considered a World Heritage Language, is widely used in daily conversation by Dictator and President-For-Life Travis, the dog, and quite possibly the cat. The language's guttural "wooba wooba wooba" phrases are often used as a method of communication during belly rubs, and sharp, piercing tones are represented during important televised sporting events. The first lady, ad hoc representative of the non-speaking minority, was at a loss for words due to the language barrier, and simply rolled her eyes when asked to comment. Travanese joins Puntravi, Travgalog and English as official languages of Travistan.
