HOOOO-RAAAAH - What does it mean?

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by Spartan, Jul 23, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. OK, I've just watched Jarhead and so I think I have a pretty good idea of what being a Marine is all about. I noticed that the Marines on there kept going HOOO- RAAH in a bad ass sort of way. What exactly does it mean though. Is it a bit like "Brrrrraaatttt!"?

    I'm going into the royal marines very soon and I'm going to shout "Hooo-Rahh" when my Corporal tells me to do something. However, I just want to know what "hooo-rah" means first.
  2. ZZZzzzzzzzzz
  3. Knob Cheese.
  4. Its HOOAAH, basically an euphanism for 'Arent we ******* great'. If you used this Americanism you will find yourself immediately wishing you didnt.
    Guys if this fella is naive give him a break, he asked a question, you lot answered with fascetiousness.
    If you think he is a wind up merchant, simply ignore, duuh.

    Wonder if the USMC Corporal used it as he butchered 24 innocent Iraqi women and children.
  5. This guy is on a wind up mission people and just ignore the Troll.
  6. Hooah #17 dunkers!!!! :thumright: :thumright:
  7. So it's nothing to do with Westoland and Wurzlespeak then. Well that's that much clearer.
  8. Oh dear did someone just compare the Corps to the USMC?
