I think that "Jinkies" is the appropriate exclamation to use when expressing surprise. But a lot of idiots on the so-called "left" are saying that "Zoinks" is the appropriate course of action here. Please help me settle this debate once and for all.

Radical centrist chiming in. It's contextual. "Jinkies!" denotes curiosity, wonder. Bewilderment, perhaps. The more immediate "Zoinks!" comes from a jolt, a startle. "Jinkies!" is a "Whoa!", where "Zoinks!" is a "Yikes!" You were correct in defining both words as an expression of surprise—however, both are correct, attached to separate definitions.
