WTF is now TFW

The Wisconsin Tourism Federation has changed its name to the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin after being informed of the conventional interpretation of its former acronym.

Several people at the BoingBoing discussion thread have already pointed out that changing it to FTW ("For The Win") would have been better.

  1. Someone should also inform The World Tae Kwon Do Federation (WTF.org). However, I suspect the organization won't change its acronym without kicking and screaming.

  2. Simon Fraser University, the most beautiful campus in Canada, also has a similar issue, which the students embrace enthusiastically.
