So at work today, I was really bored and starting think about languages that had click phonemes in them and so I thought I would ask, is there a language where you can say "I can't breathe!" entirely in clicks? Since ya know... you don't have to be able to breathe to make a click.

I'm not as odd as I seem. My job is just really, really boring. haha
