Pope to take a break down under

I thought the Pope was already celibate.

Phnar!

    What is the common equivalent of “Phnar”?

    Is it:

    Grrrr!
    Yar! (Pirate-esque)
    Aaaarrgh!
    Hahaha!
    or….is it an Indian expression perhaps?

    ???? (I’m curious).

    I don’t know the origin of “phnar”.
    However, it is meant to be onomatopoeic, representing the half snort, half laugh one might release upon hearing a ribald pun.

    So I’m thinking it’s the sound of snickering / sniggering / sneering…

    Sniggering, yes.
    Sneering, no.
    I might have to record a sound bite for you.
