I can't think of one time when I have used that word.
It's a verb. I don't like verbs.
I haven't used it in a long time, but I probably used it a lot back in the 70's when I taught swimming lessons. There was a lot of sputtering going on back then. Ha!
About 2 times in my life.
I've noticed my coffee maker can sputter. It also growls, gurgles, and hisses.
Speaking of cool coffee pots:
I can't tell how that happens but yes...it is v cool.
Every now and then, and usually in reference to someone, including me, spitting words and sounds out when they get really angry and or flustered.
I cannot remember saying it in recent years. When I had dirt bikes they could sputter. Why do you ask viv?
I don't know. Yes I do...
I was making peanutbutter toast for breakfast and I was trying to think of a post. I thought "have you ever tasted a peanut's butter?" - my mind went to sputter and what an under used word that is.
Then It spiraled out of control from there, so we ended up with 7 posts.
But I seem to be sputtering now, so I will stop.
You are such a sputtering pervert, uncle.
