agree  bartek: charkotliwy, bo on bez płuc był :-) Buachachaaaa.... :-)

  -> no właśnie, nie można powiedzieć, że on był "bezpłucny" nie? ;o)

agree  Agnieszka Hayward: odgłos śmiechu na granicy bezdechu :o)// byłabym ostrożna z "pustym" śmiechem, bo ten ma jednakowoż zupełnie inne konotacje...
2 hrs
  -> racja, dzięki, lepiej głuchy albo zdławiony może

agree  magry: "zduszony" to swietny pomysl, ale, podobnie jak tygru, nie zgadzam sie z "pustym"
15 hrs
  -> tak, racja, chodziło mi o brzmienie, ale faktycznie "pusty" to także "bezmyślny", dzięki

agree  Janina Nowrot
