Ich habe mir neulich in einem Anfall von Nostalgie alle ollen Tarzan-Filme mit Johnny Weissmuller besorgt und bin grade dabei, die wegzugucken und in diesem Posting auf The Art of Manliness versteckt sich am Ende ein echtes Juwel: die Original-Anleitung für den Tarzan-Schrei™ „as written in Edgar Rice Burrough’s rejected trademark application for the Tarzan Yell“.

The mark consists of the sound of the famous Tarzan yell. The mark is a yell consisting of a series of approximately ten sounds, alternating between the chest and falsetto registers of the voice, as follows -

1. a semi-long sound in the chest register,
2. a short sound up an interval of one octave plus a fifth from the preceding sound,
3. a short sound down a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
4. a short sound up a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
5. a long sound down one octave plus a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
6. a short sound up one octave from the preceding sound,
7. a short sound up a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
8. a short sound down a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
9. a short sound up a Major 3rd from the preceding sound,
10. a long sound down an octave plus a fifth from the preceding sound.
