Exploring wolf references: wolf whistle

wolfie1Wolf-whistle is a little different from many of the phrases I’ve explored. Just why the sound, made by inserting one’s fingers into…one’s mouth…is unknown. Some suggest it’s called that because the men making it are wolves–giving unwanted advances toward women. The high-pitched whistle is also sometimes called a wolf call.

Humans have a long and sordid history with wolves. As I explore these phrases, I’ll note that much of the danger of wolves is mythology. Wolf fact can be found here.

This subject was inspired by #WerewolfWednesday, which I hold each week on my Facebook page.
