Meaning


What does Blep mean?

Blep is the sound that somehow pops up in your head when you see a cat or any other cute animal accidentally sticking its tongue out.

Any animal that sticks its tongue out for a prolonged period of time, unknowingly, look adorable as hell, and there is no word more fitting for the situation than Blep.

Although the tongue hanging out does not actually make the Blep sound, somehow it just fits perfectly.

Cats are most famous for Blepping, but it can be attributed to other animals as well, and it is always funny.

Its meaning is similar to “mlem”.
