Says YEE-OWW ... to Express Pain

Related:

No one really gets hurt in Herbie stories, but some do feel pain, which is expressed in several ways, mostly YEE-OWW! Nobody ever actually says anything as mundane as OUCH.

Herbie can't be hurt, but feels pain if it's funny. Villains are the most likely to be in pain, while no women (Mom included) ever feel pain. What causes pain? A lot of pain is associated with biting and butt jokes, so being bitten in the butt, well, YEEE-YOWWWW!

Index terms: damage, hurt, suffering, pain, Richard E. Hughes, Ogden Whitney
