Term used by people(typically pre-teens) when they are trying to show they are cool, and are stealthily slipping into 'what the fuck' like silent ninjas only to become the next generation of cool kids(who are found wearing snapbacks that say 'SWAG' or 'DOPE'). It is a term of exclamation used in relatively less intense moments. The first 'what the' comes after a lot of thought and mental anguish at the age of around 9.

What in Blue Blazes
As his slumbering mind was touched by the dawning rays of wakefulness, his first impression was of a mop of frizzy orange hair brushing his face. Awareness suddenly slapped him upside his head, not only was there was a person seated on his lap, but he was strapped inside a car sardine-can-packed with clowns, missiling towards a burning building. "What the!" he exclaimed.
