English

Etymology

Of uncertain origin; most likely from a 1993 dance catch-phrase “whoot, there it is!”,[1] but other theories exist, such as that it is a blend of wow and loot (as might be exclaimed during a role-playing game), an acronym for “we owned the other team”, a corruption of root (as might be exclaimed by a hacker on obtaining root access), or a derivative of Scots hoot.[1]
