Woo-hoo: the origin myth
Woo-hoo, woo hoo, blah-blah. Worse than hearing people say this is seeing it in written form in e-mail and at websites, usually complete with multiple exclamation points.

Here's someone who has counted the increasingly frequent use of this pre-sentential exclamation as noted in the number of results produced by a search-engine. He speculates that the expression owes its popularity to The Simpsons.
