Choobee-doobee and other free-to-use buddy trip catch-phrases:

Ever notice how every time you are on a trip with your buddies, at the start of the trip one of them will crack a joke that will make everyone laugh, and pretty soon that keyword or phrase becomes repeated throughout the trip? Those are called Choobee-doobies, and they can be used even after the trip is over, well into the end of your marriage (probably the cause of).

“Ain’t that right Jackie honey?”
“Yup!”
“Choobee-doobee!”
And we all laugh for a split second. She sighs.

So here are some phrases you can BORROW during your trip to Rio, in case you dont come up with one by day 2.

  • Choobee-doobee = totally free from meaning, which is great and very versatile.
  • Nya-banyeh = like above.
  • Tchoo-roo = whenever “thing-a-magig” or “doo-hickey” is too long, Tchoo-roo (2 syllables) will flow right off your tongue. Great for explaining foreign words. (Example “Get me one of those tchoo-roos”… but you have to point at the same time, otherwise you might end up with nothing, or a churo.)
  • Tchup-Tchoo-roo (how you would call your buddies over, or to get their attention).
  • That’s what she said (props to the writers from The Office (US)).
  • That’s said she what (once the above gets tiring).
  • Pew-Pew-roo (said in a condescending way to anyone who seems to bitch about little shit. If you puff up your cheeks so you look like a sad Saint Bernard puppy, you’ll add the cherry to this reply).
  • I hears ya (only say it sarcastically, whenever it is clear you didn’t hear them).

Retro Choobi-doobies

Are ones that can be revitalized if repeated over and over, and always at the right context:

  • Hot-diggity! (said in 50’s style, with a victory punch to the left side the side).
  • Ass if (a variation of the overused “as-if”.)
  • Uh-huh! He said [word]! (imitating Butthead).
  • In ya face!
  • Ooooh! Diss!
  • Finger!
  • Booosh!
