    Post Yay for this statement

    In the text below, what does the word "yay" mean?

    Yay for this statement: "Use beef with the right amount of fat. I recommend 80% to 85% lean ground beef. The fat is what makes your burgers juicy." I will choose to use this as an excuse to cheat on my diet this weekend.

    Re: Yay for this statement

    Mmm. No, not exactly. The writer is happy and so says "Yay" because some expert says it's OK to eat some fat. Most recommend you don't eat fat at all. Yay for this statement is another was of saying I like what I am hearing/reading.
