What in the world is Booyah?

"Booyah (rhymes with doo-dah) is a chicken soup sometimes known as Belgian penicillin. Belgian festivities where it is served in copious amounts have been the subject of picketing by Chickens for a Sustainable Future."
-- author unknown, but probably written by Frederick Heide. Appeared in the program notes for "Belgians in Heaven," a musical play performed outdoors in Peninsula State Park by the American Folklore Theatre in more than one summer season.

Cheese curds, booyah and beer,
That's what I like to hear.
I may be kinda pokey,
But I say "okey-dokey!"
To cheese curds, booyah and beer.

-- from "Belgians in Heaven," by Frederick Heide & James Kaplan
