Acronyms and turns-of-phrase penned for expediency on the World Wide Web are so commonplace now they're practically real words on their own. With usage so ubiquitous, it's hard to believe it took until now for the North Carolina DMV to be alerted to the fact the acronym "WTF" actually meant something โ€” and that something is plastered across up to 10,000 automobiles in the tar heel state.

The Department was alerted by a 60-year-old woman whose grandkids clued her into the hidden no-no word on her plate (probably while snickering uncontrollably). She, in turn, ruined everybody's fun by telling the DMV. Letters have gone out to all WTF plate-holders and a free replacement is being made available. (Thanks wookie1901) [WXII12]
