It is interesting to know that there was Wisconsin Tourism Federation that their biggest problem wasn’t finding a way to attract more people to the metropolitan Kenosha area; it was the realization that its initials mirrored the slang abbreviation for “What the Fu*ck” The WTF from America’s Dairyland has been around since 1979, so it likely predates the vulgar WTF. In the end, though, you can’t fight an internet meme. The organization changed its name to the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin.


You should know that when Joan Woehrmann started her ambulance company in Whittier, Calif., in 1955, she hit on a pretty brilliant acronym: AIDS. The letters stood for “attitude, integrity, dependability, and service,”

She didn’t foresee the name eventually signifying one of the greatest medical catastrophes of the century, though. By 1985, The Los Angeles Times reported that Woehrmann’s drivers were being taunted and that the public mistakenly started to think that the line only transported AIDS patients.


In 1990, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Florida decided it had heard just about enough kidding about its acronym, POOF, which resembled an old offensive term for a homosexual man. The musicians changed their name to the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra.
