Why not?

Where I live (Southeastern US), a common colloquial equivalent to the question "Why?" is "What for?" -- which, interestingly, is closer to the Chinese literal meaning ("for what?").

So just for kix I tried it, but it was marked incorrect. I reported it as "my answer should have been accepted"; we'll see what happens.
