German, military:

The only (correct) answer to any (reasonable) order given by a superior rank (or any other rank in a temporary position of authority), usually followed by a swift execution of said order.

Also more often than not followed by some form of swearing/bitching directed against the superior, when out of his/her hearing range (mostly done by conscripts in the first half of their 9-month military service or senior enlistees who consider the ordered task a nuisance and/or beneath them).

Uffz Schmidt: "Müller! Tun Sie dies und das! Bewegung!"

G Müller: "Jawohl, Herr Unteroffizier!"

(ein paar Sekunden später und einige Meter weiter)

G Müller: "...tun Sie dies und das! Fick dich doch du blödes Arschloch!"


Sgt. Schmidt: "Müller! Do this and that! Move your ass!"

Pvt. Müller: "Yes, Sergeant!"

(a few seconds later and several meters farther)

Pvt. Müller: " this and that! Go fuck yourself you stupid asshole!"

A sarcastic affirmative response to an overly strict or domineering person. The German military root of the word implies a reference to Hitler, as his officers would have given the same emphatic response to his orders.
"Bart, I told you to stop whistling that annoying tune!"
"Jawohl, mein mammedant!"

It's a phrase that turns most Germans horny.
Gretel: Ohhh Hansel, your boots are so shiny! would you like to touch my pflepushdieshundtdlahisbergerhan?
Hansel: I am titilated, I will touch, jawohl!

Gretel: I am in liebe.

Yes. When you have to acknowledge (say yes) to someone your pissed off at but what to do it in a way that will also piss them off.

A reference to the time when saying yes to hitler meant saying “Jawohl mein fuhrer”.
Mom - go clean up you room this minute young man.
Son - Jawohl, mein fuhrer!
