What the hell is w00t?

Friends, I need assistance. I have been seeing the term "w00t" frequently for the past couple years. I know that it is used as a sort of celebratory interjection in online communications, but most terms in the online world correlate to some spoken counterpart.

Yet, I don't think I have ever heard anyone say "woot," or if I have, it was most certainly with implied reference to the online world--that is, you could definitely hear the 1337 00s.

What is the derivation of w00t, and why would any sensible creature considering using this in any form of communication?
