Which region of English does this come from? I've never heard it before. Tooironic 23:54, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

As a matter of fact, neither have I. Cdhaptomos 00:00, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Seems to be US English, glancing at Google Books. Equinox 00:09, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
It is. I hear it in Texas sometimes, but it's pretty uncommon. laugh it up is more common, IMO. Ultimateria 00:14, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Definitely US. 5 hits at COCA. None at BNC. No bgc hits until late 1940s. "Yuk" is supposed to be onomatopoeia for a kind of laugh. DCDuring TALK * Holiday Greetings! 01:00, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, I've modified the entry accordingly. Cheers. Tooironic 01:28, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: To laugh; to chortle; to have fun. These aren't synonyms. I thought this is more like "clown around", "fool around", "goof off". DCDuring TALK * Holiday Greetings! 15:59, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. —RuakhTALK 23:30, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
