oi oi[edit]

Oi oi is a phrase in British slang. I've been unable to attest it in print for our purposes. It's not just a repetition of oi (a rude cry for attention), but is used in informal, blokey fashion to draw attention to something, like "hey, look", and with a note of surprise. Sort of thing you'd hear in the pub: "Oi oi, he's brought the wife with him". A sitcom I saw (Coupling, I think) had a character announcing "oi oi, tequila slammers!" when they were unexpectedly delivered to the table. Equinox 01:58, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Bloody Brits. I reckon it's citable, but not by me! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:00, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
