i know it from my ninja turtles days, basically its used as exclamation before doing something, kinda like "BANZAI!", or like the dictionary sais of delight satisfaction or agreement.

i think it originally came from surfing... but im not sure

Nice entries so far, guys.

Here's mine: First thing I thought of. Didn't spend too much time on it... I'm just feeling lazy tonight. *sigh* Too much to think about to draw anything worth posting.

About half hour/Flash MX and watercolors. Most time was spent day dreaming.. hehee.

Yeah it's not 640x480....
