Last Halloween, my wife was handling candy duty when a trio of children,
costumed as a witch, a pumpkin, and a princess, arrived at the door.  She
had spent some time arranging the lollipops, candy bars and other sweets in
a metal bowl and was quite proud of the results.  The three children said
"Trick of Treat!" and she presented the bowl:

"Whooooaaaaa!", they marveled in unison.

My wife beamed, offering each child two pieces of candy.  As the children
were walking away from the door, my wife overheard one of them saying, "See,
they really go for that "Whoa" thing!"
