Origin of "zug zug"?

20 Human Paladin
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?

Horde NPCs say Zug Zug when you click on them, sometimes.

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 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.

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.

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
