    This is goofy to debate

    but the American heritage dictionary has it hoopla, from the French word houp-la. If you're still taking orders from the Queen then I guess your spelling is OK>

    • I was just kidding, I stand corrected, it is Houp-la or hoopla, I was trying to get away with a US conversion, generally when converting Canadian dollars to US dollars, there seems to be a 0 missing, 10,000 canadian dollars is only 6500 US dollars, see! there is a zero missing. So, droped the o out of hoopla to make hopla!

      All in good fun,
