The online era has spawned quite a few internet acronyms and initialisms, several of which have become 100 per cent mainstream, which is why the following story is so odd.
A Massachusetts track team made the news recently after their jerseys raised a few eyebrows –- and likely caused quite a bit of snickering amongst fellow runners.
The jerseys sported the initialism for Wakefield Track and Field given the team by the booster club the following last season in bold red letters on the sweaters.
Yes, their jerseys said ‘WTF.’
The superintendant, Joan Landers, claimed ignorance when asked how the acronym slipped through the cracks saying that she wasn’t aware of the double meaning associated with WTF.
