word watch: razz

To razz -- to make fun of someone.

From "rasberry tart" which is cockney rhyming slang for "fart"

It comes from making a rasberry sound by blowing air through flapping lips -- or, in less refined circles, a farting noise.

Ben told me this last night, so I'm sure I should credit some blogger, but this was the only one I found.
