Main Entry: cowabunga
Function: interjection
Definition: an exclamation of delight or satisfaction

as from

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


Hehe… I had to look it up…

Pronunciation: /i, [key] Interj.
(a yell of exhilaration, mainly used by surfers.)

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.

I like the daredevil cow idea! Ref pic of Quechee bridge in VT used.
About 45 minutes ps/wacom.
