We Need a Verb!

You know that thing that sometimes crazy people, or parents, do where they put their mouth on another's belly and then exhale forcibly, making a very loud and ticklish THWBBT!!! noise?

Why doesn't the English language have a verb for that, or at least a name!? Really, it'd only be decent and all...
