This is a Yiddish phrase... not French like some dumbasses think.
Oy vey, that girl is a slut.
A form and phrase of astonishment for people of Jewish descent. Also refers to excitement of a half price off sale or any other type of discount on useless yet cheap items.Along with excitement to sales and bargains, the term "oy vey!" can also associate with a negative excitement such as an outrageously overpriced item.
Pat:Look guys there's sale at Urban Outfitters!!!

Mike:Yeah Pat I'm with Matt on this one,oy vey indeed!
