    Guys, It looks like, this time, I can't just recognize a few unknown words.

    Hi all! I encountered a few words which I didn't know. So could you please tell me what "pedo" mouse is, and what's following after the words around on that recording? Here's the link: https://soundcloud.com/researcher76/mouse

    It's not a 'pedo mouse', it's 'like a bi-pedal mouse'. It functions as if it had two legs.

    "Pedo mouse" sounds like a new meme.

    Not likely for Spanish speakers!

    Warning: the following is the translatio into English of the Spanish word "pedo". Some readers might find it offensive, since it has to do with bodily functions.

    Unfortunately, it has worse connotations in (British) English. "Pedo" or "paedo" (pronounced "pee-doe") is a contraction of "paedophile". A "pedo-mouse" would be a very sinister new cartoon character or computer peripheral.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you all for your replies. And sorry for "pedo" because there isn't, of course, any "pedo" in that phrase, but I couldn't get it for the first time untill I used 8 times stretching. So at last I heard the following: This mouse is kind of almost like bipedal mouses not going around on all fours.
