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.

    Don’t you love it when you have a saying that no one else understands?

    Personally I am fan of using the word “valid” as an expression of goodness.

    ie, “That LK kill was totally valid.”

    Eh – just feels… weird but right sometimes.

      Valid – sounds very yuppy – I had to explain to a melbournian what being a nigel meant too. Nigel no- friends.. and also HAHAHAH ROCK JOBBED – I think I have perplexed my American friend with some odd phrases too – I think he thinks I makes these things up. (Hower I did get rocked jobbed so badley with my Yippee / Yippy beans) . I’m not sure I like Yippy as the spelling though. When you are excited you say Yippee! not I am Yippy. Yippy makes the Y sound too short. When your happy your Yippeeeeeeee

    Try googling “Yippy Beans”.

    Don’t worry, I’ve heard the expression before. (Born/bred in South Australia)

      Lol. I’m sure I tried that variation.. but if your right! Do a “Yippy beans” seach you do get some results. It was spelling fail >< in my defence when was the last time you had to write it down? Yippy beans with no " " brings up some weird song lyrics, and something about food.

    When I was a little kid, I loved to eat the croutons from my parents’ salads. And one day I asked what they were called, didn’t know they were called croutons. And my dad told me they were Zornaks. I didn’t learn that they were really called croutons until I was 13. I’m sure I got a lot of weird looks from waitresses when I asked for Zornaks with my salad.
