humorous sounds . . .

On April 30, I posted the haiga:

cow pond --
the plop, plop
of frogs

now I'm searching for words that have a humorous sound AND that describe a sound. like burp, splosh, titter, thwack, gurgle . . . Any suggestions?

Years ago I saw someone accidentally knock over a lobby ashtray. The sound that came to mind was, "ker-sprinkle-sprinkle". It may not be amusing but seemed to fit the moment.

ker- in front of word does make sound more amusing, it must be that "k" sound. Kerplunk, kerthunk, kersprinkle . . .
and i've also found: honk, yowl, grumble, tinkle, poot, toot, gargle, slosh, snort & crinkle.
