A question to show someone that you did hear them but are wondering why they even said or did the stated in the first place.

Typically spoken with tonality or discust. And the Y is noted and pitched to emphasise the retoric of the question.

It ends up sounding like...What...but why.eye!
Did you know that i 'enter something viol and discusting'!

What but why!
