Froofreraw, hullaballoo, kinnipshen

Posted by Chris on January 20, 2002

Sorry about the spelling in the subject line but I'm not sure if there is a correct spelling for any of this.

Fooferaw, hullaballoo and kinnipchen (with or without 'fit') seems to describe some upheaval or tumultuous todo. Are they simply non-sensical words that because widespread (Canada, anyway) because they sound unusual or is there some origin for any of them? I was mostly wondering about 'fooferaw' (frooferaw?)
