Came across this term after reading a story titled "Saudi Interior Ministry Expanding jihadist rehabilitation program", so I had to look it up. Know Your Meme tells us “Wat” is a variant of the English word “what” that is often used to express confusion or disgust, much like its better known acronym “WTF,” short for “what the fuck.” Urban Dictionary has a similar definition: The only proper response to something that makes absolutely no sense. This video points up some foibles you can encounter in the programming world. Which is why I stick to C. C is not perfect, but it is predictable. As for what the Saudis are doing, all I can say is WAT.
