Looking in the internet comment section you may see "r/whoosh", or "whoosh" and wonder "wHaT dOeS iT mEaN?".
I got chu.

If you see a dumb comment that completely misses the point of the subject (for example someone not getting/taking a joke), then you type "whoosh" which means it went way over their head!

Single word exclamation, accompanied by a gesture where the hand is swept palm down over the head from front to back with about three inches clearance.

Indicates that the joke just told was too sophisticated for the listener and has gone "way over their head".

Sometimes comes to mind when reading feedback on Urban Dictionary quality control.

Whoosh is the term to describe an enthusiastic swishing sound, often used when one is talking about something totally unbelievable that perhaps may have zoomed past unbelievably fast, both in a literal or figurative sense.
"So, like, there was this thing, and it was so fast, man, it was like WHOOSH and then bam! It was gone!"

or

"I dunno, man, I'm totally out of it today. I mean, today somebody was talking to me and everything they said just kept whooshing past me, y'know? Just like whoosh, and stuff."

A game played with two or more people and a very busy freeway. The aim of the game is to cross the freeway and get as close to the back of the cars as possible. Ponits are awarded for style, (doing it on a bike) closeness (how close you got to the back of the car) and Scare factor (how much you scare the driver

points are removed if you are hit by the car, or die.

Multipliers are awared for the number of cars you whoosh on a single crossing.
Let's play some whoosh on that busy freeway Theo
