Not sure where it came from but whenever my boys are rumble strutting (so basically all the time) we tell them to "stop quibbling!". Just googled what it means and got this definition:

Quibble
ˈkwɪb(ə)l/
verb
gerund or present participle: quibbling
  1. argue or raise objections about a trivial matter.
    "they are always quibbling about the amount they are prepared to pay"
    synonyms: find fault with, raise trivial objections to, complain about, object to, cavil at, carp about;
Seems appropriate!

My boy Ted is champion Quibbler and likes to let us all know what a tough guy he is on a near constant basis!

Anyone with boars have another name for it?
