Can you suggest similar expressions to "what's happening"?

The first that came up to me are:

  • What's going on?
  • What's up?

I am learning English, I am in a small country in Europe. I am looking for other ways to say it :

  • Uncommon ways
  • Funny and/or playing with words or double meanings
  • Used in the past
  • Very new, used in streets or only for very young people
  • Common in a zone. For instance, only used in Bonton area
  • ...

It's interesting with respect to @Reagan's answer that "craic" is also pronounced and sometimes written "crack".


I’ve started using "What’s cracka lacking"? I think I saw it on the internet and thought it was funny so now I use it. I’m pretty sure only high schoolers and other people around that age use this saying.
