I just learned that FTW means For The Win. I knew it as F the World and still use it as such. But since you kids are making these old acronyms clean please I would like to see someone make WTF clean just for fun. Who knows people might start using it as such since FTW is so popular as For The Win now. They also changed the gang name FSU from F#$% S#@% Up to Friends Stand United.

I don't think anyone purposefully set out to make FTW 'clean'; it was just that 'for the win' was a popular saying on the internet that got compressed into acronym form. lots of common things get compressed like that: 'IANAL' (i am not a lawyer), 'IAWTC' (i agree with this comment), 'IIRC' (if i recall correctly), 'YMMV' (your mileage may vary), 'YHBT' (you have been trolled), 'DIAF' (die in a fire), 'TBH' (to be honest), 'IMO/IME' (in my opinion/in my experience)... :)

Not bad, but I don't think it has the same connotation. For example I don't Worthless Thread Fodder works in response to seeing a breakdancing salaryman on the way to work; What The Fondue? might.

If I could add an H, then it might work better:

What the Freakin' Heck?

What the Flaming Hell?
