'Hip hip horrah' is a shout which shows that a person has succeeded in a task and by saying 'hip hip horah' he is showing his happiness toward the job in which he is suc…ceeded.

to be cool or radical
To "dig" was to like or enjoy. "Jive" was literally a dance style, but came to mean what ever was happening around you.

To dig something is to enjoy, like, love or understand something. Jive means to tease or lie to someone. Jive can also mean to dismiss something as false, nonsensical or unimp…ortant. Examples of dig: "I really dig The Beach Boys.", "She digs the beach.", "I dig what your saying." Examples of jive: Teasing: "Don't jive me! My nose isn't blue." Lying: "Don't jive me! I saw you with her!" Nonsense: "That's jive Mary! You know you are as pretty as the other girls."
It means the person thinks they are a bulls***ter.
I asked the two living Ink Spots and their Manager this question and they didn't know the answer. The best guess is that it is jive talk meaning a raw hamburger with a slice o…f onion. --------- My grandmother's best friend married an Inkspot member and she says it refers to an old new york tradition of putting half an onion and a raw egg into your coffee to make a breakfast-type dish/drink.
Like in 'Roam' by the B52s :)
mostly in my school when people say "jive" they are referring to inappropriate parts of the body or weapon such as " I'm going to grab yo jive if u don't shutout" or "shut up …before i shoot you with my jive"
From UrbanDictionary.com: "A kind of walking or dancing that is like crumping in motion. This term was originally used in "Maniac Magee" but no one knew what it meant then. It…s the most gangster you can get without being gangster. Just bend, cross your arms, maybe snap your fingers, and keep walking."
