This word was traditionally brought into use in foxhunting, it was used when one person from the hunt saw a fox, and he would shout this word to indicate to the others in the hunt that a fox had been spotted. It then came into use in World War II when pilots of the Royal Air Force saw enemy aircraft.

A word borrowed from the English expression that is used when spotting a fox during hunting. This word is more commonly known for its usage when spotting a new female employee in the work-place that may be considered by the majority of the male workers to be of romantic interest.
A new female employee is observed pouring herself coffee while Mike and Jared are inconspicuously engaged in conversation in the hallway.

Mike: "Tally-ho!"

Jared: "diddo"

Tally-ho is a greeting commonly used by members of the working class in Great Britain. It is a relatively new word and its use is becoming more and more widespread each year. The internet age has aided this substantial growth, as tally-ho now commonly replaces more formal, older, outdated greetings such as sup alrite and hi

Alternatively, Tally-ho can be used as an exclamation, in situations where the speaker is in great surprise. It is commonly found in the equestrian world, where tally-ho is a variant form of 'lets-go' or 'allons-y'

A term developed by pimps in the late 60's. It was used as a way of saying "goodbye i need to go count my whores now". Back then it was easy to lose count because of lack of technology. They now use a device known as the "bitch meter". This is often mistaken for tally whore.
Tally ho! Ok see ya later.
