The Friggin Loon Defines... WTF Wednesday

I'm sorry... I couldn't help myself... I just had to invite a guest writer (resort to plagiarism) for WTF Wednesday this week. When I opened up Friggin Loon's post on Tuesday, it just called out to be featured on WTF Wednesday. Here it is in Friggin Loon's original words. He gets all the credit for this... go visit him NOW!

WTF Wisconsin Tourism

OMG, the Wisconsin Tourist Federation now know why people have been snickering behind their backs for years. Hmm, seems the penny finally dropped for them after they featured on a blog highlighting unfortunate logos. Evidently no one told them WTF stands for WTF, which would explain the smirks and giggles. The non computer savvy federation were oblivious to the popular acronym and it’s meaning but now have changed their name to a less controversial Tourism Federation of Wisconsin.

Rather unfortunate

Yep, rather unfortunate...


Thanks, Friggin Loon! I couldn't have said it better myself!

Hi Catlady! Unbelievable! That's right up there with parents who give their kids names that mix badly with their surname (Neil Down, April May, and the twins Tom and Bob Katz). Indigo

I'd have left it WTF personally.

Indigo: Yeah... my parents actually had a friend named Harold Butz. (For some reason he didn't like to be called Harry.)

Maelstrom: Me too. I mean, isn't the whole point to get publicity?

Maelstrom said...

As long as we're on this... and this is not a joke. About 10 years ago or so in a health care provider service directory for my company there was a gyn named Harry Beaver.

too bad they didn't change it to FTW. It would have gone viral in a heartbeat.

Mr. Glob said...

I bet they would have gotten more publicity if they kept it WTF!

CatLadyLarew said...

Maelstrom: Well, now there's a name that works!

Old Silly: That's what I thought.

C.B.: I think they just should've stayed with a good thing!

Mr. Glob: Think of all the promotions they could run... "Thinking to yourself, WTF? Then get away to a relaxing weekend in Wisconsin!"

Skip Simpson said...

LOL!!! That is a definite WTF moment in history!

Ann's Rants said...

That is classic.

Thanks so much for stopping by WOW and leaving a comment. I really appreciate that.

Enjoy those little people, btw.

Donna said...

OH WTF!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Skip: Some things just speak for themselves!

Otin: Yeah, that's what it means at my house, but I have to keep with the theme as Hit 40 developed it. Out of respect, you know.

Ann: Indeed! How could I NOT share that on WTF Wednesday? Friggin' Loon comes up with some incredible stuff!

Donna: You said it!

Hey glad to be of service Cat Lady :) Blahaha there was a kid where I lived called Ophelia Dick. Unlucky.

Hit 40 said...

Wow! Who do they have doing tourism? I am worried your tax dollars are being wasted if they are not even hip enough to know WTF OMG!!! TY for the logo pics.

CatLadyLarew said...

frigginloon: You're my WTF hero!

Hit 40: I don't know... it's kinda making me want to pack up and move to Wisconsin! (I hear Madison is a party town.)
