Rotation goes woof, Translation goes meow. Reflections goes tweet, and Shear goes squeak. Kernel goes moo. Image goes croak, and the row reduce goes toot. Columns say quack and rows go blub, and basis goes OW OW OW. But there's one sound, that no one knows ... WHAT DOES THE MATRIX SAY? Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! WHAT THE Matrix SAY? Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! WHAT THE Matrix SAY? Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! WHAT THE Matrix SAY? Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! WHAT THE Matrix SAY?
