Sign of the month

You know how office buildings have those little signs on the wall with maps to the nearest exit in case of fire? The one in my building is my favorite, because it includes the announcement, "FIRE ALARM SOUNDS LIKE - WHOOP!"

It's all caps. It says "whoop." It has an exclamation point.

Whoop.

the sheer joy of the "whoop!" brought to mind Tag Team's classic 1993 hit "Whoomp! There It Is." then I wondered if I was crazy for remembering THAT song a strangely similar composition: "Whoot! There It Is." turns out, no, I'm not crazy, and some research led me to a lovely and amusing grudge match between the two: http://medicineshow.blogspot.com/2005/07/medicine-show-grudge-match-1993-whoomp.html
so thanks. i could be doing any number of things, but apparently researching early 90s one-hit wonders takes precedence.
