bzzzt, wrong

(jargon)   /bzt rong/ (Usenet, Internet) From the flim "Dead Poets Society", spoofing quiz shows such as "Truth or Consequences" where an incorrect answer earns a blast from the buzzer.

An expression of mock-rude disagreement, often following a quote from another poster in a forum. The less abbreviated "*Bzzzzt*, wrong, but thank you for playing" is also common.
