    Default Yoghurt is so gay-E!

    Someone said it with an unpleasant tone, like this
    "Yoghurt is so gay-EEEEEE!"

    I think yoghurt is not his cup of coffee, isn't it? 8)

    As an alternative to EEEEEEEE, people are using EEEEEEEWWWWW.

    I also heard another one,

    "Could bE-EEEEEEE!" 8)

    That's so British! Do you use lots of EEEEEEE at the end of the utterance?

    Kind of like a rising tone in Chinese. I think that's an irony. :wink:

    Someone must record that so that I can hear what it sounds like.

    Sounds like this!

    You will hear a lot of EEEEEEEE in Two Doors Down.

    Have fun!

    If the tone is rising and hesitant,it indicates uncertainty.
