Yowza!

Posted by Cogito on May 13, 2003

I've contacted several sites asking about the origin of this word - so far, they have all been stumped! I've seen Yowza used in advertisements in the Western US for such disparate things as white water rafting and yard sales - all appear in the vein of "WoW" or "Look at This!". Anyone have a clue about where this came from?
