An exclamation which may be used to inform someone that they have crossed the line by word or deed, and must therefore be put back in their 'place'. Usually accompanied by a hand gesture reminiscent of talk to the hand, in which the outwards-facing palm is almost in contact with the face of the wrong-doer. A truly successful 'place' is said to have occurred if the miscreant is caught off-balance by the act of putting them in said place.
