Barking Mad

Cousin Alicia was never the brightest light in the room. Now she has become hypnotized and will bark (quite loudly) whenever anyone says the word cat in her hearing. It’s kind of amusing for awhile. But not so much when the family gets together at Cousin Barbara’s house, Barbara being the cat lady. You’ve never seen a room full of cats become vacant so fast.

Still, you are in the will for Cousin Alicia so you feel you should do something to help her? After several trials and errors you manage to hypnotize her again. Only you can’t undo the barking command. Instead you can substitute another word. What word will you give her to bark at instead? Something she isn’t likely to hear (and bark to) or something that will be funnier than “cat”? Or both?
