Yippee Beans /Yippy Beans

I was talking about Yippee beans  via a chat to someone the other day  – I must have said something like  ” I feel like I’ve had Yippee beans.  To which they responded “Huh?”  So I thought it was a spelling error of mine,  that my meaning had been lost because my spelling failed as it often does.  ‘I’ll google it”  I said – thinking I would find it somewhere with an explanation as to its colloquial use.

Nothing.  I found a Cafe in Melbourne by the name of Yippee Beans.  Google foo fail.

“But It was always used in my house” I tried to explain.  My dad used to use that phrase.

So it turns out my dad made it up!   Or it has to be the one phrase that has not made it to internet infamy.

So I introduce you to the expression and the implied meaning of what yippee beans are.

Yippee = excitement   so think bouncing beans – happy beans – excited beans – so acting like you have had yippee beans means your bouncing around – all excited like.
For the life of me,  I can’t even remember what I was feeling excited about.

I may have lost that feeling  in the realisation that the expression did not exist.  So by this here post. I give the expression, and the context of having Yippee beans a place on the internet.

 I shall blog about Wow later. Promise.

Edit:  Thankyou FOO!  They are also known as “yippy beans”  and usage of these as a colloquialism have been found mainly on forums where people discuss things.   With the exception of a 1992 police report into alternative names for a substance. I promise you that though that it was used as a term for hyperactivity in my family household long before 1992.
