Getting a BOOM boomerang

Have you ever used the interjection “BOOM!” when you think you are right, but actually you aren’t? If someone corrects your BOOM, they boomeranged you.

Last weekend, I was explaining something to my three-year-old daughter. At the end of the explanation I confirmed it with a “BOOM!”

But then she corrected me and gave the real explanation. At the end of her explanation she said, “Daddy you are not boom. I am boom.”

And she was right. She returned my BOOM with her BOOM.

So I said, “BOOMERANG! I tried to boom you, but you actually boomed me, so that’s a boomerang.”

Boomerang is when someone booms you back, and that person is correct.
I got boomeranged.

Is that a real phrase? Based on the first 14 definitions for boomerang on urbandictionary, it looks like this is not a thing. We can make it a thing.
