Definition

raspberry rate
(Adult / Slang)
A farting noise produced by placing the tongue between the lips and blowing air vigorously. This jeering or echoic sound (or labial flatulation) allegedly originated in the burlesque and vaudeville theatres of the Bronx when audiences expressed dissatisfaction with a show or its performers. Synonym: Bronx cheer.
