How to use whoa in a sentence?

  1. Joe Clayton:

    When programmers and broadcasters ask for 200 or 300 percent increases, somebody's got to say 'whoa,'.

  2. Russell Henley:

    Off the first tee, I was like,' Whoa,' because of the views. It's just way different than I imagined watching on TV, the undulation is unlike anything I had seen anywhere else. The thing about it is it looks downhill, but it's even more downhill than it looks.

  3. Raymond Boyd/Getty Images:

    The scientific community should be the first ones to say, 'whoa, whoa, whoa, some of these claims are absolutely absurd.' It doesn't mean we don't have a problem. It doesn't mean we won't face challenges, and we shouldn't be thinking about solutions, but we can't be putting out this.

  4. Steinunn Guðjónsdóttir:

    With #MeToo, women are now coming out and naming the men who raped them, even if they haven't pressed charges against them, and many people are like :' Whoa, whoa, whoa ! You can not do it like this, you have to do it the right way,' there's a lot of pressure on survivors to do the' correct thing' and press charges and try to have the perpetrator convicted, but the' right way' isn't working, the vast majority of cases, they don't even make it to the judge. So they don't get any judgment on whether the perpetrator is guilty or not. It's just a mess.

  5. John Wayne:

    Whoa, take 'er easy there, Pilgrim
