- to drop with a thud
Apa magelebug ngejengit? Nyuh pongpongan.[example 1]
What is it that falls with a thud and bares its teeth? A coconut with a hole in it. [riddle] The sound that a coconut makes when it falls is gelebug. Often a squirrel or something else will eat a hole in it. This is then said to be pongpongan - a coconut with a hole. This looks (sort of) like a head with a mouth that is open - hence bare teeth.
