wasabie, wassup means: Used for saying "Hello" or "What's up?" wassup, b? What's up brother, brotha, bro, b- used as in informal greeting amongst friends. The term 'wasabie' as previously entred was mistaken for 'wassup, b?' ie what's up, brother- bro- b; that was popularised by the Budweiser beer commercials here in the US in which the characters greet each other with the phrase: 'waaassssssuuuuuuuup!!!!' back and forth on phones/intercoms. In one of the commercials, one of the characters is having dinner with his girl at a Japanese restaurant. They are brought their meals which included wasabi. The character chuckles when the japanese waiter says wasabi. So he says wassup, b. The waiter says wasabi and the back and forth and next thing you know, he has gotten every waiter/staff yelling wasssssuuuup, b/wasssssaaaaaabi!!!! Order is then restored when his girlfriend slaps her hand on the table. They are now classic commercials. There were a couple of independent take offs on these commercials that used old grannies, the "Superfriends" cartoons, and New York Jewish businessmen and Rabbis where 'wassup' was changed to "shalom" and the product was "whitefish" instead of Budweiser. Budweiser also came out with other incarnations where Yuppies drinking imports were used and one with a mafia flavour where the greeting went from wassup to "how ya doin" with heavy NYC accent. The Bud commercials can be see on the net at www.adcritic.com and the Shalom spoof was on www.neurotrash.com. (ed: and I just thought wasabi was a really hot Japanese dressing!) On this point, we received the following: Your online slang dictionary contains an entry for "Wasabi" and lists it as meaning "hello". It also properly mentions that Wasabi is a hot horseradish sauce. I believe that the usage of Wasabi as "Hello" comes from a series of American Budweiser Beer TV commercials It started with a group of men sitting around answering the phone yelling "WAAAAAAAZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" which is a wide open mouthed tongue sticking out way of saying "What's up". In the next commercial, one of the guys from the first one is out with his girlfriend at a sushi restaurant. The waiter brings them their wasabi sauce with their sushi, and the guy starts playing with the word, similar to the "Waaaaaazaaaaaaaaaaaa" from the first commencial. "Wasabi" (chuckle) "Wasaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabi" Eventually everyone in the restaurant is yelling "Wasaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabi" before the guys girlfriend scolds him and they all stop. So, "Wasabi" = "wazaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" = "What's up" (ed: which seems to sum that up pretty effectively - I think!)
Go the Whole Hog means: Out and out in favor of anything. A softened form of the phrase is to go the entire animal.
