As in, "Here, Piggy, Piggy"? Or is this some other new fangled word mess I'm missing?

squee - interjection. an expression of excitement or joy. usually used in conjunction with something "cute" or fun. i.e. "Ooh! A new episode of Lost! Squee!" or "Look at the adorable kitteh [sic]! Squee!"

It's dumb.

Total agreement. For me it somehow invokes the idea of something being ejected, like someone peeing their pants for joy.
