People calling eachother 'oi'

Postby CowzOr » Sat Jun 12, 2010 12:37 pm

What is this, when did it start and how? I thought it was just something some people in my class were saying, but then I saw someone on TV saying it too. Oi is one of those words for grabbing attention .. so when people are using it at the end of every sentance, or multiple times in a sentance, I just want to punch them in the face.

I started primary school in '83. Muldoon was still in power, the Cold War was at it's chilliest since 1961 and Boy George was known for his danceable pop-reggae androgyny rather than for chaining male prostitutes to hot water pipes.

Wasn't until the other day when Lucy mentioned in conversation that she was 25 that I realised what a fucking old cunt I am now.

Need to start another fucking band and attempt to stay young.

I have now not been in a band for 6 years. It was supposed to be a 6 month sabbatical. Really need to get my shit together and get a new rig.

I read some where that the word originated as slang, with in the working class jewish communities of london in the 1880's,
cant substantiate that though.

i will be making that claim from now on, its been remarked upon before that jews use 'oy' as an exclamation, so its certainly plausible.
