    Hoi sounds like a Yiddish skinhead greeting.

    See, i don't know much Dutch but i have learned this! It's pronounced oi and it means hi, is also where Oi! comes from.
    And i know this even in the middle of the night after a few too many... But what can i say, i have a great teacher ;)

    You were kinda wrong tho XD
    Hoi is pronounced 'oi' with an H in front of it, much like it is spelled. It does mean hi, but I doubt it's where 'OI!' comes from, tho most punks here simply skip the H entirely to make it sound like Oi!

    Hey mux :)

    well, if you just shout "Hoi!" very loud, it could sound a bit like "Oi!",
    but I also doubt if that's where "Oi" comes from...

    I guess you told him that on a saturday night, Rathryn? :p

    Technically 'him' ain't a him :p
    And I believe that oi is also a British expression, which is a far more likely origin :p
