Can’t expect a cat to have a very good bark, I guess. 🙂

Our (former Army) professor’s advice before final presentations was to psyche yourself up with “a good hooah!” I can say that it does actually help!

    1. Somewhere between Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons.

      It’s been noted my frame is a bit large to be named after a small canine.

      So pretty close to what the fox said. At least, the one at the end:

  1. What were you guys getting ready for? From the overalls, I’m guessing painting?

      1. Same here, Seley’s face makes me walk a very fine line between HAHAHA and SQUEE!

    1. “Trust me; I’m from the government.
      I’m here to help you!”
      🙂 😉 🙂
      (My friend’s favorite quote. ;-))

      1. Both Army and Navy favor “hooah.” Overall it’s the most common variant, not totally unheard of in any of the branches — started off based on the acronym HUA (Heard, Understood, Acknowledged).

        Navy SEALs sometimes prefer “hooyah.” The Marines/Coast Guard have “oorah,” and are often quite proud of their unique variation.

        The Air Force, according to my father (USAF for 26 years), favors “who, me?” 😀

        1. Friend of my ex-gf was a newbie rider and kept trying to stop her horse by yelling “Who-ah!” …as opposed to “whoa!”. 🙂

  2. I’m sorry, but when I see “HOOAH!”, I can’t help but think of that one scene from Invader Zim.

    There was one scene on there where the tallest were talking down on one of the smaller aliens, who was trying to convince them he was a capable invader, and right after some attempt at a badass boast, he let off a HO-AH!, which was immediately complemented with the shows characteristic squeaky fart noise.

    I damned near had a hernia from laughing so hard.

  3. I’m shocked to see so much public discussion of Mandy’s Hooah.

    Been trying to resist that one, since the page went live….

  4. I would not survive in the arms forces. Instead of shouting HUAH (or variant thereof), I would shout FALCON PUNCH, SHOW ME YA MOVES, or DO A BARREL ROLL. This would be the point where I die of shame or beat to a pulp 🙂

  5. Well, of course cats don’t bark. They sneak up on you all quiet-like.

  6. Ah, Army professor. That explains it. Heheh, you should try “OORAH” sometime….never fails to hype up the best of the best. X3

  7. go for a ‘Rawr!’ next time. It’s cute, but at least it’s not ‘trying to be deep-voiced’ cute.

  8. You know what Darth Vader’s favorite song is?

    “It’s all about my base, ’bout my base, no Rebels~”
