My penis!  

w00t belongs to gamers the world over. It seems to have been derived from the obselete 'whoot' which essentially is another way to say 'hoot' which itself is a shout or derisive laugh. But others maintain that w00t is the sound several players make while jumping like bunnies in Quake III. Still others want you to believe that it comes from the phrase 'wow loot' used in multiplayer RPGs many moons ago. And if you can believe it some folks even think it was derived from the gaming phrase, 'We Own the Other Team!' Fiction or fact? I suppose you'll just have to decide what 'w00t!' means to you...

Woot to me comes from seeing violent games at a young age. Like Mortal Kombat, and other gore related games. It's a mixture of saying "Woo" with excitment, and "Shit!" with the amazing shock of dislodging ones head and spine from their blood gushing body. WOOOOSHITT, Wooot!!!
