My Dad went to Birmingham today, came home and immediately asked me - because I'm the 'yoof of today', so clearly I should know - what "yo yo yam yam" means. Apparently it's Brummy slang. Only ever having been to Birmingham twice in my life, I don't feel particularly qualified to answer this question, so have turned to TSR in the hope of some lovely Brummy people enlightening me.

As a black country wench myself, I believe a yam-yam is someone from the Black Country. But I'm not entirely certain.
And I guess the yoo yo bit just means hello? I don't honestly know :/

While in general a Yam Yam is somebody from the Black Country like the above people said, it can also simply refer to somebody with a heavy "brummy" accent. For example the area I live in refers to people from the neighbouring region of Walsall (Or "wowsowl", as they put it =P) as Yam Yams.
