Wisconsin Tourism Federation Changes Name After Internet Jokes. WTF?!

Posted By Ben Goulding, 30 September, 2009 | permalink

The Wisconsin Tourism Federation has changed its name, after being made aware that it’s acronym WTF had become crude internet slang.


The federation, which was set up to attract more visitors to the state, will now be called the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin (TFW), in an attempt to put a stop to the jokes.

Unknowingly however, the Wisconsin Tourism Federation probably attracted more visitors due to it’s unfortunate acronym, than any other marketing strategy that they had in place. I say the TFW should forever been known as the WTF…even if it means it will be joked about on thousands of internet sites.

But seriously, I can’t believe they only just realized their name was one huge internet joke. I mean WTF?!!!
