    Does anyone ever use this in a verbal context? Like, do you ever really say "woof" outloud?

    Here recently, I have heard numerous straight people say the word "woof" in a context synonymous with "awesome" (whether it's good or bad).

    as an example, I was explaining to a girl how high my electric bill was and she said, "oh man, woof"...I felt kinda confused by it. I thought it was just to describe a hot guy? am I missing something?

    At least in mostly gay circles it's a term for hot, probably aimed at a guy more in the hairy / bear / muscular category.

    I first noticed it in the '80s film "War of the Roses" when Kathleen Turner pretended to serve her husband his dog as pate. "woof!"

    I have heard people say it out loud.

    I usually feel compelled to say Gesundheit in response.

    I imagine if I had an extra hundred pounds of muscle on me, people would hear me say it a lot better. As it is, I really only say 'woof' out loud, but in private. I don't really type it or say it anywhere else.

    Just one of those rare, quaint little things.

    Also on topic, whenever someone says 'woof' to me, as a manner of greeting or otherwise--though I appreciate the sentiment, I don't particularly find it to be stimulating conversation. I don't really have a response to it.

    Except 'bark' maybe. Or 'moo'. Some times I go 'quack' for fun. Chirp.

    Meow.

    Grrrrr!

    Oh, Grr, that's the one I forgot. Also used in the same style as Woof, whatnot. And same thing. I prefer 'Woof' more than 'Grr' or growling though. I think. Has more character to it. Like saying, "Boosh!" or whatever. "Woof!" "Boosh!"

    Whoop!

    I use it fairly often. Usually its in the context of seeing a guy (or picture of a guy) that just sends a shiver up my spine and makes me want to run my hands up his abs, pecs, shoulders, neck and then kiss him roughly... icon_redface.gif

    Seriously - I've heard it used in regard to a sudden cold front causing the temps to drop.

    So *THAT* is what woof means lol! Sadly, I'm quite ignorant to these terms. Someone said 'woof' to me the other day I was like 'um....'

    I've hear less than nice Gay freinds say that "WOOF" stands for "Worth Only One Fuck".
    WOOF is an appreciation for the Man you see. Some call him "Hot", "Sexy", "DAAAAAAAM", some just say "WOOF". icon_cool.gif
