Also known as wat, WUT, what! (but not what?), what. is a standard exclamation of overwhelming confusion and befuddlement. It's best when delivered in a perfectly flat, expressionless voice, but variants such as the Agitated Demand and Vulgar Query have gathered a measure of popularity in recent days.

Say it loud, say it proud, put Lil' Jon to shame - WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT!

Situations that deserve a what.

Poorly Executed what.'s
