    Smile Blue Bottle

    A week ago, a teacher asked us to look for the meaning of a variety of words and abreviations in english. At first, I thought it would be easy but then I got desperate. It required me a lot of help from my e-pals but I got almost all of them. "Blue bottle" still remains blank on my sheet. Does anyone know its meaning ? There is no sentence where these two words could be replaced in, since the teacher gave no example where it could be fitted.

    Im greatful 4 ur help !

    Blue Bottle is a fly which breeds in decaying organic material and makes buzzing noise when flying. Probably this word is used negatively (Something annoying?).
