I can tell no-one knew what an acronym was so everyone searched on wikipedia and now uses the same example. Laser.

Well, since the question mark is missing, I guess it's a fact
User avatar #56 - lyestcer (07/04/2013) [-]
An incorrect fact.

I don't accept things as questions unless they have a question mark on the end of the sentence or I actually hear them speak.

got a bunch of guys using their advanced search engine usage skills to copy and paste **** about acronyms and initialabbadoobies

The amount of grammar in these comments pleases me greatly.

User avatar #35 - vladhellsing (07/04/2013) [-]
WHAT?! It is? I've been pronouncing it wrong this whole time!
User avatar #31 - anonymoose (07/04/2013) [-]
WTF is not an acronym. An acronym is pronounced as a word such as LASER or RADAR.

WTF is an initialisation.

someone asked me today if monkeys grow on trees. i, of course said no. though, the more he explained it to me, the more i began to realize it was a trick question... no, monkeys do not physically grow out of the tree like an apple or other fruit, though, their primary natural habitat is, in fact, a tree. so, in all technicalities...monkeys do grow on trees :/

I know reposts aren't exactly a bad since not everyone see's it.

But for **** sakes, couldn't you wait more then 6 days before reposting something that was on the front page.

Either I'm missing a reference, or that in no way is an acronym for TYPO.
User avatar #27 to #25 - rrocketninjas (07/04/2013) [-]
The joke is that the acronym would be TPOW, but instead it is TYPO, which is actually a "typo".
User avatar #11 - addictakilla (07/04/2013) [-]
acronym is when the first letter of each word creates a new word, such as PETA, GIF, or NASA
initialism is when the first letter of each word creates a new word, however each letter is pronounced singularly, rather than as a whole word, such as NSA, WTF, OMG, MLB, ASPCA, etc.
User avatar #45 to #11 - crazycowhimself (07/04/2013) [-]
english isn't my native language, but are there any americans or other english natives who actually say the letters as "double-u tee eff" when saying 'wtf'?
'cause here we just say "what the **** ", not the letters

2. a set of initials representing a name, organization, or the like, with each letter pronounced separately; an initialism.

Hes not asking what an acronym is. Hes saying that WTF is an example of an acronym.
User avatar #26 to #15 - lateday (07/04/2013) [-]
But it is not an acronym...

comment #23.
User avatar #78 to #74 - lateday (07/05/2013) [-]
Well, it seems the popular interchangable usage of these words has forced dictionaries to add the new definitions...

Now we have two words that mean the same exact thing.
User avatar #18 to #15 - sinonyx (07/04/2013) [-]
no he isn't (at least that was his intention)
his intentions are to both ask " 'wtf' (what the **** ) is an acronym?" and state that " 'wtf', is an acronym."

had he used correct grammar as i have (i think) then his joke wouldn't have worked
User avatar #22 to #18 - harrymcfaggot (07/04/2013) [-]
he used correct grammar. there is no need for a comma. or would you say "tomato, is a vegetable" or "OP, is a fag" ?
User avatar #24 to #22 - sinonyx (07/04/2013) [-]
he didn't use correct grammar at all... not the lack of ending punctuaion

how the **** does that thing turn

It's photoshopped, moron.
User avatar #68 to #64 - xdiabolicx (07/04/2013) [-]
no **** sherlock
User avatar #69 to #68 - infamoustrapper (07/04/2013) [-]
What. You thought it was real.
User avatar #70 to #69 - xdiabolicx (07/04/2013) [-]
seriously? you actually think someone thought this was real?
#75 to #70 - anonymous (07/05/2013) [-]
You asked a question and you're surprised you got an answer. Gee how did you imagine this going?
User avatar #76 to #75 - xdiabolicx (07/05/2013) [-]
i don't see a question mark after that comment, do you?
#77 to #76 - anonymous (07/05/2013) [-]
It's not my fault you can't or won't punctuate and use correct grammar. That "statement" doesn't make any sense if you put a period at the end.
User avatar #71 to #70 - infamoustrapper (07/04/2013) [-]
Why would you ask a question like that if you knew it was fake, moron.
User avatar #72 to #71 - xdiabolicx (07/04/2013) [-]
calling the kettle black. i was joking you dolt.
User avatar #73 to #72 - infamoustrapper (07/04/2013) [-]
I thought it was funny, but it wasn't really a joke.
User avatar #47 to #19 - strelokkk (07/04/2013) [-]
Very carefully.


Ok, I copy/pasted this joke from another comment. I'm too honest
User avatar #79 to #47 - ifuhq (07/06/2013) [-]
Why would you copy and paste 2 words?
User avatar #80 to #79 - strelokkk (07/06/2013) [-]
Because I type very slowly
#10 - fuckyouto (07/04/2013) [-]
No question mark, no question.
#28 to #10 - anonymous (07/04/2013) [-]
they pretty much never use questionmarks on tumblr :/

Disregard my previous comment, I got confused between "anagram" and "acronym".
