Can you whistle?

I can't. Well, I can whistle through my teeth, but I can't REALLY whistle.

Also, which finger do you use to snap your fingers (besides your thumb, I mean)? I use my ring finger and apparently I'm the only one in the world who does so.

When I was little, I could only whistle by breathing in the air and I snapped with my pinky.

Now that I am an adult, I snap with my middle finger, whistle by blowing out, and whistle using my fingers for added volume at sporting events.
Democracy is not a spectator sport.

You know why pandas are endangered? Cause pandas ain't got no game.

Jesus loves you, but I'm his favorite.
No, I can't.

I snap with my middle finger, which I'm pretty sure is the finger most people use... I think.

My cousin can only snap "backwards" which is really weird. It's kind of hard to explain... Maybe someone else knows what I'm talking about.

yes. I'm actually a d*mn good whistler if I do say so myself. I bet I could win competitions! but I can't whistle with my fingers as others can. if only.

I snap with my middle finger. I have also snapped with the ring finger but that's harder, awkward and generates less sound from my hand.

My boss is a good whistler too - he was whistling whilst walking through the office just now and that's what made me wonder about who can whistle and who can't.

I can whistle, but I can't do that finger in your mouth loud whistle. Oh, and I snap with my middle finger.
Madonna getting upset with her daughter for dressing too slutty is like Mr. T getting upset with his son for pitying too many fools.
I can whistle, can't do the loud finger whistle, and I snap with my middle finger.
Yes, and when I do it in the car I get all paranoid that other drivers will think I'm making a kissy face at them.

I can whistle very well, but I can't do the really loud finger whistle. Well, I can kind of do it, but it comes out very low and not really that loud.

And I use my thumb and middle finger to snap.
Yes, I can whistle... I just put my lips together an blow. (Sorry, I had to.) But, I can't whistle a song or loudly or anything like that.

I snap with my middle finger.

I can't do that finger in your mouth loud whistle.

I can't whistle and it makes me really mad that I can't. I got teased a lot for it as a child and also teachers would never believe me that I couldn't whistle. WHY can't I whistle? It's a mystery. I can do that curl the tongue thing that's supposed to be genetic. Damit I ought to be able to whistle!

I could never do a cartwheel either, as long as we're listing deficiencies. Nor did I fully master the somersault.

I'm a ring finger snapper.

And I can whistle.
I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.
Apparently, as a baby, I learned to whistle before I learned to talk. It's legendary in my family. I never learned to do the loud-whistle thing though, much to my disappointment. I'd love to be able to loud-whistle for my kids. My friend can do it...she has a different whistle for each of her kids, and they come running when she does it.

I snap with my middle finger and thumb.

My husband and I have "the family whistle". Unfortunately he's the only one who can do it. Thank God for cell phones in a crowd.

I couldn't whistle for a long time, and the rest of my family could, and they all tried to teach me, and then one day it just clicked. Now I'm a whistlin' fool! just like everyone else in my family. We sing, too.

I can finger-whistle, but not like most people, and it's not as loud as most people.

I snap with my middle fingers, but I can snap with ring fingers, if for some reason I can't snap with my middle finger (paper cut or whatever) and I have a pressing need to snap. Not sure why I would need to, but it's good to have a back-up snapping finger, just in case.
