Obscure reference to the Simpsons: Monty Burns has just made a speech, and was getting booed out. When he asks his kiss-ass assistant if they're booing him, he replies "No, sir...they're saying boo-urns." He then asks the crowd, and they continue to boo him, save for Hans Moleman, who says "Well, I was saying boo-urns."

An exclamation, used in disappointment or excitement
"I lost the tickets to the concert."
"Ah, boo-urns."

Similar in meaning to the more conventional "boo", but with more emphasis. For the avid Simpson viewer in particular.

4.
Exclamation. A cheer for The Simpsons character Montgomery Burns. Often used incorrectly by Canadians to suggest disproval of anything, rather than approval of Burns.
Obviously, "boo" and "Boo-urns" are two different and mutually exclusive words.
My, that old dog, Monty Burns has done it again! Boo-urns! Boo-urns, I say!
