In Reply to: Sloane Rangers (posh, hooray henry types). posted by Jim on January 06, 2002
: This is interesting. Starting with "Lazy Susan" and adding a little "naff" we now are at "Sloane Rangers" and "hooray henry types". I found a "Sloane Ranger Handbook" online and based on that can speculate on the attributes of the "ranger" culture. However, "hooray henry" wasn't as clear. Though I'm clearly in no danger of meeting either (nationality, class, wealth and geography among other small impediments), I am curious. Further definitions anyone?
The in-crowd (presumably) having gone to bed, a still-alert Pacific Rim type found "hooray henry" in the Meanings & Origins section of this website.
