see usage note on ivy-tuft. This is a phrase I'm going to say more often.

By god. ;-)
That's right. The port-admiral be damned.
Oh, ha ha ha!

Don't forget the commas. Your version made it look suspiciously like actual laughter, whereas with the commas--"Oh, ha, ha, ha!"
I see. I'll try to remember that. Ha, ha, ha.
I just can't see how that's actual laughter. Does anyone pause, as the comma suggests, after each "ha"?
I suppose if you're laughing heartily, in a certain forced way. But who thinks of commas while laughing heartily?

I have a friend - no, it's not me! - who has one of those yuk yuk laughs and he definitely spits commas.
Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk.

Yuk, yuk, yuk I can understand. But ha-has seem not to need definitive pauses.
Oh, the subjects we get into on Wordie. :-D
