For a really long time, the Washington Post online kept asking me "What's Your Boss Make?":

To me the phrasing felt odd, but couldn't be called incorrect, so I hit print-screen, meaning to look up this peculiarity later. Someone must of complained about it though, as the WaPo has recently started asking "What Does Your Boss Make?":

I do use "What's" to shorten "What does", but not at all frequently. Is this a regional usage?

"Someone must of complained about it though..."

Buddy, if you're going to go on the long journey of perfect language skills you'd be better off starting with your own crap.
The correct answer, of course, was "someone must have complained about it though...". But you knew that, right?! Must be regional usage...
