here, hear

Is it "here, here" or "hear, hear"? There've been times when I've wanted to use this expression but hesistated because I didn't want to look like a dummy by getting it wrong. I see you've opted for "here, hear" -- a Solomonic solution that I have also considered. That way you're only half wrong and can blame it on a typo. Or is that the correct way of writing it?

I think he opted for a play on words due to my mis-spelling in post 7. Silly mistake.

I forgot to mention in my previous post to you that the depth of thought that you nearly attributed to my whimsical correction of the poster was way to generous. Let me tell you, I am completely void of that depth........especially when my football team plays a Sunday night game in Jacksonville, and getting tuned up for the game is a necessity.

Steeler fans never reach "Solomon level thinking" during game days.
