I feel that "Wait, what?" could be its own trope, separate from the double take. While "Wait, what?" is basically a verbal double take, it is less cartoony and more often used in real life, so it has a different quality. I has also seemingly become way more common in the last decade or so, maybe longer, as the double take feels more like broad, physical comedy, while "Wait, what?" fits better into a modern, more cerebral comedy framework.

That was already attempted as "Wait What Whoa". It's now a member of the Permanent Red Link Club, hence the rename. We don't need anymore pointless PotholeMagnets ,thanks.
