Was watching a YouTube video on time series in ggplot2, moved on to another YouTube video on ggplot which turned out to be in Brazilian Portuguese. In which, it turns out -- I could probably have worked this out if I had thought about it - g is pronounced like the j of French je, and the final t is pronounced (roughly) tchi (because no word can end in a consonant in Br. Portuguese) - in other words, jéjéplotchi. Impossible not to love. When the dog barks, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I shall think of jéjéplotchi and not feel so bad.
