Exclamation Booyah

Okay, here's a little factoid for all you werd nerds. Did you know that Booyah! was not originally a slang word of late 20th Century origin, defined as an exuberant exclamation of triumph, especially rendered by a sports aficionado with high blood alcohol levels? No! In fact, booyah is a traditional Midwestern American dish! When I was a little boy, I would frequently eat Chicken Booyah at the Calumet County Fair.



Does anyone else know of any words of obscure origins that would be of interest?
