Woo Hoo! Where did this come from?

I don’t know when I started saying it, but at some point in the last 10 years, my mouth overtook my mind and the pre-verbal, primal sound, “woo hoo!” uttered forth. Then this little brother from another planet overtook my mouth like a body snatcher (or a tongue snatcher to be exact).

Is it an alien invasion, a beloved phrase of America’s favorite son (Homer Simpson), or some pre-lingual archetype still attached to our language like an unnecessary appendix.

Everything2 has the answer and all the applications for “woo hoo.”

    4 other miscommunicated ways to use the jovial words, Woo Hoo!

    1. I think they taste great! Their chocolatey taste comes with a ritual of giving them a good shake and then twisting the cap off.

    2. Oh, I think my Mother is calling me…

    3. Wow, this party sucks… woo hoo.

    4. Hmmm, this email browser say’s I have email.

    Woo, Hoo could resist!
