What does Yeet mean?

Yeet is an exclamation of extreme power and vibrating superiority, mostly used as a battle cry, when you are throwing a projectile out, into oblivion.

It may also be used as an expression for our overflowing enthusiasm, becoming synonymous with an extraordinarily strong yes.

Similar to Skyrim, real life shouts also get stronger if you add more words of power to them and the second level of yeet is ya yeet.

The final form of the shout has not been uncovered as of this day.

Yeet had been in use since 2004, but initially, it was mostly unnoticed.

Yeet have been featured in several contexts since 2008, including dance videos of black people, memes of Lil Meatball, as well as a girl, yeeting an empty soda can into the crowd.
