WTF - Taekwondo

Watched some Taekwondo at the Olympics, and in the background was a sign - "WTF".

In this texting, interweb age, it must be unfortunate to have your international sporting organisation sharing the same initials of something that is more widely known to mean something else.

Sorry, it was a pathetic attempt at humour being stuck in a sweaty, stinky office on a beautiful day...

So did Puhutes, I think, but Sandgrounder didn't get that he got it...

Even back in '95 when I had it it on my uniform, I thought it was funny - but back then, it was nerd humor!
