Well, I knew there would be somebody not thinking in the right mind who would ask this question. So, I just did it for the gag. :p

Third time I've seen "wheal". Time to ask one of you young'uns what the heck it means. Hope it isn't something as stupid as "woot".
Never underestimate my capacity for pettiness.

I believe it means “well”. I think it once made one of AJBryant's heads explode.

I thought it meant that as well, I think it's very weird though. It doesn't sound good to me at least, so why would someone say it?

One of life's mysteries I suppose.

Edit: One of AJBryant's heads?

Well, seeing that animation, it actually seems like "woot" or something.

Is that what it means!? I thought it was some 'lol'-thing! Or even like "roflcopter". I have no idea what half this nonsense means...
