Interjection: I would have thought that the Simpsons references were just an alternative to "yes".
However, I don't watch "The Simpsons", and I'm not American, so perhaps I am wrong??

yar

A nautical exclamation used by pirates... so far the only cites are from The Simpsons. --Jackofclubs 17:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

There's also arr ("arr matey" seems to be a stock phrase when imitating pirates). I wonder what it came from, if anything: yeah? aye? 86.154.56.36 11:45, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
Deleted. And I believe this is a misspelling of yarr, which looks attestable from Books. Equinox 13:32, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
