Blowing a raspberry or making a Bronx cheer is to make a noise made to signify derision (and/or silliness), made by sticking out the tongue between the lips and blowing to make a sound reminiscent of flatulence. In the terminology of phonetics, this sound does not appear to have an official name, but might be characterized as an unvoiced linguolabial trill. It is never used in human language phonemically (i.e., to be used as a building block of words), but it is widely used across human cultures as well as by other primates.

Nomenclature varies: in the US, Bronx cheer is sometimes used; otherwise, in the US and in other English-speaking countries, it is known as a raspberry, rasp or razz — the origin of which is an instance of Cockney rhyming slang, where the non-rhyming part of a rhyming phrase is used as a synonym. In this case, "raspberry tart" rhymes with "fart". It is first recorded in 1890.

The term "Bronx Cheer" is used sarcastically because it is not a cheer, it is used to show disapproval. The term originated as a reference to Bronx, New York, and the call used by spectators in Yankee Stadium

You have it all wrong. That's not cheap, it's just that their monthly payment on the rig is so big that they don't have money left over for a campground or lunch!

Finally caught up...I was about 50 pages behind. I see Dunner and Francesca have gone from new guy to senior member on this thread...way to to go.

From WalMart...slides out, did NOT eat the chicken and potato logs in the store. Brought them out and set up chairs under the awning and ate them properly.

parking

If a 24 hour Wal Mart has a no over night parking sign, where do the 10 pm - 6 am shift employees park?

My husband and I started RVing PT in Feb 2011. We have had some great trips so far, and on the long ones always stay the night at a Walmart as we pass thru to our destination! We always ask mgmt, and everyone has always been so welcoming! I'm sure it doesn't hurt that we always seem to "need" something while we are in Walmart! :-)

How about we "bring" one of those Wall Street guys out to give a lecture on how to get rich off the hopes and dreams of others? And then if/when we don't like what he says we can give him a job maintaining our black tanks?

I know Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has said he and his wife occasionally park their Prevost at a Wal-Mart.

The Supreme Court has ruled that WALMART parking is "Good for The Constitution"?!?!

Can't argue with that...
