Of course a bear craps in the woods. That question isn`t even funny. They live in the woods, they crap where ever they please. A good 99% chance that will be in the forest.

Obviously so.[/quote]
Apparently, though, this one walked out of the woods to crap in a clearing.

I think Charmin already answered the question, though very ambiguously. Thanks for the reinforcement.

We`re not arguing, "welp" is serious business!

@Deviros
I think we`re agreed that "welp" is completely correct in it`s comical usage here. The only think I disagree with is that "welp" and "whelp" are the same thing. However, as I pointed out, there is a dialectic difference here. Where I`m from, I`ve never once hear "whelp" used that way so for me, it is uncommon. In Canada we use it to talk about misbehaving kids.

Example: A kid spray paints an anarchy symbol on your house, it would not be uncommon to say "you miserable little whelp".

Because the "proper usage" refers to carnivorous animals, my usage is also slang which is why I personally caution against the use of slang dictionaries, especially on the internet when people are coming from all over. Your transitional preposition is my delinquent neighbour.

Also, I`m an English major so I`m a little more p

@Kilgore:

All of that is kind of my point.

This post isn`t serious. It`s not a documentary. It`s quite casual, and therefore, whelp (or welp, in this case) actually fits the air of the post, completely.

Example: A bunch of bees take over the house next to yours, and it would not be uncommon to say "whelp, there goes the neighborhood."

By the way, this disagreement in syntax is why English scholars will refer to dialects of the English language such as American and British English.

"Welp" may be acceptable in American slang English, but everywhere from universities to print media use British English and writing "welp" or claiming that "whelp" is used to connect sentences would result in you being laughed out of the room.

For those who care about the increasingly common bastardisation of the English language: http://preview.tinyurl.com/knt82a


"Whelp" with an `h` refers to the young of carnivorous mammals OR a young child. It descends from Middle English <- Old English <- High German.

"Welp" with no `h` is NOT in any legitimate English dictionary to my knowledge. I would be inclined to accept the urban dictionary`s definition of "whelp" for "welp". (If that makes any sense)

Slang dictionaries are useful for determining slang usage, but are not accurate for the actual definitions of words. I`ll point to the word "pimp" as an example of where the slang and the actual definition are DRAMATICALLY different. In this case, the urban dictionary`s attempt to define "whelp" is inaccurate both in respect of the actual definition of the word

@bobbyjr:

All i`m hearing from you is

"I DISAGREE WITH YOU EVEN THOUGH I`M WRONG SO THEREFORE YOU ARE USING AN INVALID SOURCE LALALALALALALA"

The previous definition, before the urban dictionary one (which i was providing for additional clarification), was from the Slang dictionary. Apologies if i didn`t credit it properly. This is a forum, not a dissertation, i didn`t think i needed to provide a bibliography.

Lesson learned.

@bobbyjr:

welp: a form of whelp.

whelp: ""well", in the speech filler sense."

from the urban dictionary:
Whelp: "interjection. A remark, generally thought of as southern slang, that is derived from the word "Well" and also used in its stead in order to lead one into another sentence that may continue a paused conversation/story or be used to signify the conclusion of one. Where as pronunciation of "Well" can be drawn out, "Whelp" is strictly pronounced very quickly and with a slight rising-inflection."

When someone asks a really dumb questions where the answer `Yes` should be obvious, many will will respond with "Does a bear poo in the woods?"
