Whats the official name to describe the involuntary spitting out of your drink when someone says a shocking or comical comment?

I use pffft and a friend uses burb to describe it but does it have an official word that might appear in the dictionary?

I always thought it was pfft but as far as official I have no earthly idea.

But it is very hard to find the perfect picture of someone doing it

Id say a splutter wasn't strong enough a word, if you think of someone doing it it is more like a sneeze. aggressive spraying, bending forward

Yup - Simon Pegg in the sitcom Spaced.

If we're not satisfied, perhaps we could have a go at inventing a word, a la Meaning of Liff.
