[[caption-width-right:237:[[IShallTauntYou The French Knight taunts you in your general direction]]!]]

When a character blows a raspberry at someone. Also called "giving someone the raspberry." Also known as the Bronx Cheer (and ''technically'' known as an "unvoiced linguolabial trill"), it is a mild taunting gesture that tends to signify immaturity in the user. Done by sticking one's tongue out, and usually placing each hand spread-fingered and thumb-in at the ears, and then blowing, making a "pthththt" sound. The origin of the term is [[UsefulNotes/BritishEnglish Cockney rhyming slang]]: "fart" -> "raspberry tart".

If they also pull their eyelid down, then it's not this trope, it's EyelidPullTaunt.
