It is the drum roll


Explanation:
This really should not merit me any points. I put this in response to the agreement to my answer for the question "Contractual Consent." Someone responded, "I give my contractual consent to the translation." I responded with the drum beat before a silly joke, which I was trying to get phoentically with "bu du mp puh!" Obviously it did not work out well... sorry for the confusion, I will try to be less confusing in the future :).

Salud.

you are not getting any points for this even though you are the only one with the right answer (you sent it to MEEEE), and it's not a technical question = no points, i just wanted to know what it was...furthermore you will not be appointed as drummer either, it sounds awful.....but...can you sing? tap-dance?
thanks for the explanation

  -> Thanks, Unfortunately the answerer has decided not to give me any points.

agree  Gabo Pena: i'm leaning towards this, Amy, it's not always a bad joke, sometimes it means obvious joke; it is a refence to the vaudeville comediands who performed with a drummer
