The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy? "Beat me daddy, eight to the bar!".
All my available English versions have "woe" for OUAI in Rev 8:13 and 9:12,
except the "Good News Bible" ("Today's English Version": the one with the
line drawings by Annie Vialotton) which translates "horror" and "horrors".
"Horror" comes from the Latin /horresco/, the standing up of the hairs on
the nape of the neck. Horror me harum tubarum [shudder]; or is it Harum
Scarum? The Vulgate has /vae vae vae/ (transliteration of OUAI). I suppose
the Latin for OUAI is /Eheu/.
