Additional Information: 

"I've got oomph!" is an advertising slogan used by Rice's Bread, a restaurant started in 1930s. Rice's Bread ads can be seen in the Afro American Newspaper in the 1940s. Besides meaning a sound made under exertion, “Oomph” is also a colloquial term for sex appeal and attractiveness. Although the first spotted use was in the 1900s in the U.S., "oomph" did not become a popular term till 1930s, and became accepted as a "proper English word" in a London newspaper in 1946.
