Origin of "zug zug"?

General Discussion
Pretty often as alliance on my server you will hear a horde yell out in Orcish "zug zug [racial expletive]". At first I thought this was just an isolated thing, but I've heard it yelled by toons on other servers as well. And I was in a battleground yesterday and saw an opposing horde whose guild name was "You Had Me At Zug Zug." That really got me wondering where this saying comes from, what it means, etc- anyone know?
Zug Zug = Hello
Horde NPCs say Zug Zug when you click on them, sometimes.
Zug zug is an Orc NPC greeting.
Think it means yes yes, the peons in Warcraft 1,2,3 would always say Zug Zug when you gave them a command.
Zug zug has been around since the first Warcraft.
Zug Zug?
Dabu.
Stop poking me.
You're making me angry.

Ah, the fun things when repeatedly clicking NPCs in Warcraft II.
Ah ok, thanks- never rolled a horde toon so never heard that from an npc.
Zug Zug goes as far back as the Movie "Caveman" starring Shelly Long, Ringo Starr, Denis Quaid and Barbara Bach.

Zug Zug meant Sex.

Classic stupid movie if you haven't seen it.


Zug Zug means sex O_O

Damn I was beaten to it >.>
I remember Zug Zug back from the old Warcraft games. Though, the "Caveman" reference is rather disconcerting considering that all the orcs said it to each other and at the time, there were no females that we knew of. =P

On a sort of side note, I loved that movie. It's worth a laugh if anyone hasn't seen it.

You are one smexy looking orc my friend :O :3
kinda makes sense tho. click on a green orc? "zug zug"
click on a fel orc at netherwing? "me not that kinda orc!"

who knew those demon tainted orcs were the prudish ones.
Best parts of caveman
- the asian guy speaking perfect english
- "Nyaa muncha! Nyaa! NYAA!"
- nearly getting screwed by tonda after drugging their meals with berries from a marijuana plant in order to nail his woman

This movie is best watched blazed.

Warning!: watching can and will result in caveman roleplay with your wife/girlfriend lol
Why else would you click on peons?
