Hip Hip


So who gets to say Hip Hip before the Hooray (or Huzzah depending on your fancy)?
I tend to leave it for the closest or most important at the occasion, ie the Wife, Father, Prime Minister present.
I do, however, have a voice that lends itself to the Hip Hip, and feel a little guilty leaving it for the low-speaking VIP.
Am I correct to be observing protocol, or should I be taking the front foot, leading the way into the Hooray!!!?

Of course, if you do manage to get in first, then you can stop after the second repeat... or on the third one say 'hooray/huzzah' rather than 'hip, hip'... or add a fourth 'hip, hip'. :-)

Not that I would ever be so rude as to have tried any of these...

Snowy does. This is very random, but your post brought back a vague memory of Snowy going "Hip Hip"...

There cannot be too many hip hips.... we were at a birthday dinner last night and confusion arose as to who said hip hip - the waiter and another started..but sadly there was no third hip hip followed by a leaderless and rather folorn hurrah!!
I think you should let your hip hips out!!!
