yeahwhatta

220; compounding
Exclamation expressing confusion or uncertainty. Writer was seeking a colorful way of expressing confusion. Since this was on a sign, the writer needed a word that would grab viewers’ attention and cause them to read the sign more carefully. This word seems to express confusion well, and if readers have not seen the word before, it could confuse them at first (which adds to the meaning the word is trying to convey).
