An acroetymythonym ? Things have gotten so dumb, who can tell anymore?
Hooah...a spirited cry, which can mean nearly anything positive. Short for "Heard, Understood and Acknowledged." See also, HUA. HUA Head up Ass
For the uninitiated, "Hooah ! " has been the U.S. Army's preferred way of saying, "Yes indeed," "Wow," "Right on," "O.K.," etc. for about fifteen years. It can even be a question :
"Let's get some beers. Hooah ? " "Hooah ! "
Apparently the only grammatical answer to "Hooah ? " is "Hooah ! "
Stress is always on the first syllable, and it often helps to make the word sound as much like a caveman grunt as possible. BTW, Marines do not and *must* not say "Hooah ! " They must instead say "Oorah ! " though I'm not sure that it's used as a question yet.
Do You Yahoo!?
