The expression is one of a famous trio from the sunday post cartoon strips oor wullie and the broons above the others being jings and crivens both of which ive heard being genuinely used but only by members of a generation now gone. This week im going all broons and oor wullie on you as a child i used to read these comics almost religously and so i think its only fair to dedicate at least one post to them jings crivvens help ma boab an exclamation of surprisebewonderment and a cry for help all rolled into 1 the only sentence above where . Jings crivvens help ma boab whit a terrific honour it is to be the handsome face of the oor wullie big bucket trail itll be braw fun to be dressed up in a sorts o different outfits designed by some of scotlands finest talent. Key quote it is important not to read too much into the personal preferences of the writer of oor wullie but i suspect that fewer and fewer people are using expressions such as help ma boab
