When I watched the Romeo and Juliet film with their fathers as gas station owners or something, I thought 'woo' was such a stupid word that there was no way it could be a real word and not a word made up to fit the parody.

I would say it is up there with words like 'lit', 'fam', and 'dank' for the 'Dumbest Word in the English Language' award.

woo is not a word but woo woo is, it's generally the arm waving ******** that religious people come out with to explain everything and nothing akin to don't look behind the curtain, magic and ontology and all sorts of random senselessness.

"It just is because God is magic alright"

Some religious dude.

Talk about selective quoting, if you read the whole thing it adds context. If you cut and paste 3 words it's disingenuous and incorrigible and it only serves to highlight the authors moral rectitude is lacking, which is ironic lets face it.

Google: ontology, epistemology etc actually sod that here's the definition

I've heard of 'woo woo', and know what it means. I was just confused by your claim that 'woo' by itself wasn't a word. I don't see how anything you said afterwards addressed that. :confused:

Clearly irony is quite ironic.

I missed a crucial word; new gender-neutral pronouns. The University of Toronto has recently had some difficulties with them.
