In the same way that the onomatopoeic expression "rhubarb-rhubarb" was used to represent the sounds uttered by members of the British House of Commons, "hearn-hearn" was often used in the Goon Show to represent the sounds uttered by speakers of US English (e.g., "The Sleeping Prince" [http://www.thegoonshow.net/scripts_show.asp?title=s07e06_the_sleeping_prince] ).
