isn't that something US Marines shout?  never did get the point of it.

I believe it started with the military, but at this point it's just something people say to celebrate their own successes.  We say it about potty training and other less heroic things.  :P

He doesn't have to actually say "Booyah" - I just meant to imply that he was congratulating himself on being so awesome.

I figured as much... that's just what popped into my mind and it was a really weird image.

The U.S. Marines shout "Oorah!"
Navy: "Hooyah!"
Army: "Hooah!"

It's a battle cry, like the British military's "Huzzah!"

Don't ask how I know this crap.

:o  You've been watching way too much Blackadder!  Hmm Lord Flasheart ;)

Never heard the military shout Huzzah!  before.  Maybe Oi!  Get the Bar stud!!!!

I just love the idea that Amaranthe would be completely oblivious to the attacks and Sic would totally take them out in the meantime:) so right on.
