Jps Expression?

Postby Silvanoshei » Fri 01.19.2007 12:16 pm

I've seen in anime where girls will put their finger below 1 eye and pull down and stick their tongue out? What is this? lol

I thought that was a common expression. I use it all the time with my non-anime-watching friends and understand what I mean by it....I think I've eve seen smileys of it...

It's also an Italian gesture.
For instance, if you were with a friend, shopping for a car, and the car dealer told you so many nice things about it, exaggerating all of the details, and your friend did this gesture, your friend would be telling you something along the lines of, "Hey, this guy's trying to screw you over."

Pandano, are you sure? In italy we don't use this gesture.

We have this one

And the 'linguaccia' (lingua = tongue) that's just sticking your tongue out (saying mhhh) that has more or less the same meaning of the akanbe.
