WTF

; acronym
An acronym of the question “What the fuck?” WTF is an acronym for the question “What the fuck.” Often, the expression is used to express surprise or confusion, as in “WTF is that?” or “WTF is up?” Usually the term also conveys a sense of displeasure. For instance, a person would not use the term if he or she were pleasantly surprised; the person uses the expression when he or she is rudely surprised and rather disturbed. The fuck that is essential to the expression serves to emphasize the bewilderment brought about by the situation in question. WTF was used because it is cleverer to say than “What the fuck?” Furthermore, WTF is also faster to type and I assume that it probably came about as a result of the spread of instant messaging and the spread of cyberspeak. Currently, people are rather fond of using cyberspeak in spoken conversations.
 
WTF? Does anyone else think that the concept of a high school facebook is janky?
