"A plague of frogs recently was visited upon the Howies, who didn't really deserve it. All they did was move from Long Island, N.Y., to Coconut Grove, to a house alongside Merrie Christmas Park, in the rainy season.
''Like rhaa, rhaa! And then it gets louder,'' said Roy Jr., 10. His sister, Grace, 8, made a similar but more nasally quackish sound: ''Rhah!'' "
As far as I know it is
A) an expression of one A.netter for "very very .... "
-- like "that is 'rhaa expensive'
B) his nick-name for one or two other A.netters
But I cannot tell you where he has the expression from
looked this expression up in "Oxford Advanced Genie". Interesting :
1) (old-fashioned, especially BrE) a stupid or silly person
2) (especially AmE) a criminal who is paid to frighten or injure people

Quoting Kieron747 (Reply 9): Tell me, did you actually do a Google search for 'Rhaa' or do you regularly read the Miami Herald?
I suspect you googled Rhaa,
have you A) had a look into posts of "UTA...." ? or B) have you even met the man in person ? In case of B) after a few minutes you no longer will notice that this crazy expression comes up every 75 seconds !
Cheering for frogs ? Nobody here is cheering for frogs. The originator of this term on a.net does NOT use it in regard to frogs in any way. He would rather say that your argument is "rhaaaa silly", seriously tearing on the nerves of those around !
