Splatty Splat!

I inherited this “talent” from my oldest brother, who taught it to me when I was in high school.  I’ve yet to find a productive use for it, other than teaching it to other people, so they can use it to annoy their familes and friends. :-)

    Never was able to do it, but it always annoyed the heck out of me. Of course, at my school, they called it “fartty noises” (is “fartty” even a word?), and used them in accordance with that name.

    My brother did it all the time, but never taught me to do it.

    He made compositions with the splat, whistling, and popping his knee.

    Hi, Drewbie!

    That’s a pretty talented brother you have! My brother who taught me the hand noise thing could also pop his ankles. How do people discover that they have talents like these, anyway?? I always wished that I could play tunes with my hands, but alas, I could only make the splatty-splat noise…. which was annoying enough. :-)

    Hey, Frank!

    Anything can be a word, if you want it to badly enough! :-)

    In school, I always called it my “hand synthesizer.” I think that’s because there’s a guy who does it and calls it his “musical hands” on some of Weird Al Yankovic’s CD’s, and I was always a little jealous of his ability to make discernable notes with it…
