Sadly, the WTF lobbying group has realilzed its name is, well....a crude acronym nowadays.

Like AYDS and Beaver College, the WTF (Wisconsin Tourism Federation) got tired of being the butt of jokes and changed its name to the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin. That's too (snippng) weird, if you ask me.

AND this:

The folks at the Wisconsin Tourism Federation, a 30-year-old tourism lobbying coalition based in Sun Prairie, couldn't possibly have predicted how the Internet would change the lingo.

While its abbreviation, WTF, was fairly innocuous a few decades ago, it means something entirely different these days.

Remember the chewable diet tablet named "AYDS"? Well, IF you do then it is a testament to being of a certain age, as in a little long in the tooth, in America.

So now....let's all hear it for the "TFW"!!!!! (woohoo)

AND..."Thanks, Internet!!!"
