Via language log, the internet has claimed another victim — the Wisconsin Tourism Federation. Compare the old and new logos below.
It’s really a pity that the Southern Tenant Farmers Union no longer exists. Otherwise we’d get more great lines like the one from this book, “Communist efforts to capture the STFU,” or this one, “Without the STFU, these people may not have dared to exercise these rights of citizenship.”
LOL. (And of course I’m referring to Lol Choua, former president of Chad.)
If the Wisconsin tourist people wanted to be really “with it” they’d have renamed their group the Federation for Tourism in Wisconsin. FTW!
