What is what the, watta?
what the, watta meaning interjection. What’s going on? What’s that all about? It can be asked about anything which is seemingly absurd, or very puzzling. Shortened from ‘what the (expletive)’, this phrase now suffices on its own thanks to Rove’s usage of the phrase on Rove Live. See wtf.
