WTF ?

When you’re president of a country wrestling with an unemployment rate of 10% for the last 2 years, putting together a state of the nation address speech that would maintain what is left of your sagging approval rating is pretty darn hard to do. After all, performance is pegged on measurable, quantifiable results and patience gets thinner when results fall short of expectations. But Barack Obama is a master orator and has the knack of injecting cynical yet amusing rhetoric folk can relate to. In his latest nationwide speech he used a rather sleazy acronym for a theme familiar only to those in email/texting world – “WTF”. This time it stands for something different – Winning The Future, Obama’s theme for regaining back America’s economic glory. Obama sounds sardonic and mirthful as if saying β€œ OK, WTF (What The F) – can’t you see I’m trying to deal with this damn mess we are all in ?” πŸ˜‰ I thought the acronymn was cleverly concocted, as it brought about a sense of humor with somewhat of a tempering effect on the impatience of those who demand a quick turnaround in the state of the economy. CNN was quick to capitalize on the humor suggesting for those non tech savvy folks to ask any text-crazy teenager to find out what the acronym means πŸ™‚ Obama’s WTF presidency has barely two years left which might not be enough to produce the results people want to see. The last two years was all about firefighting, trying to unfuck the mess that the Bush administration left behind. Will he be afforded a second term by the American public ? We shall see in 2012.


WTF Moments

Now, for some real WTF moments…

I read this from the SHOUT OUT section on one of the past issues of the free evening daily newspaper I read everyday. Train rides can be really boring and this dude thought the train was his living room couch. I hope he had his earphones on πŸ˜‰

I wanted to spotlight the man on the LSE 5:53 train on Tuesday night, I hope you enjoyed the porn you were watching on your laptop. Maybe you were prepping yourself for the corridor club or maybe your wife requested you to come home ready to go, but I suggest keeping your porn watching for your home, car or wherever – JUST NOT ON THE TRAIN !!!!!!

JUST FOR A FEW RASPBERRIES…

The recent case of a Canadian woman who was sent back across the Ambassador Bridge at the Detroit-Windsor border because of a few undeclared raspberries is rather startling. Now she’s suing the U.S. immigration for $500,000 for manhandling her, including groping her genitals her during the search. I don’t know about you folks but when I go through immigration, any country for that matter, my goal is to get through the darn gates at the least possible time. I could be the dumbest monosyllabic bastard in front of these people because I have no intention of wasting my saliva over anything that is not being asked of me. It is pointless to play on your ego with immigration officials because they can bar you from entering their country if they don’t like the look of your eyebrows. This could be a real tough case. I hope the woman has witnesses and evidences to prove her point. How can people create such a nasty mess for a few measly raspberries ?

  1. I like the Limbaugh and Jessica Simpson quote. πŸ˜€

    Hey, you’re back blogging after some time. πŸ™‚

  2. WTF ? Β« The Warped Zone…

    Here at World Spinner we are debating the same thing……

  3. On Hosni Mubarak’s quote, there are actually old generation UAE nationals who support him. They think that Egypt’s future will now be more gloomy without him, just like what happened with Iraq (yeah, they love Saddam).

    • there’s a grain of truth in the possibility of Egypt becoming unstable because there is no leader with an effective political party that is prepared to take the reins !

  4. That’s a funny theme. OMG, I hope that pervert wasn’t sitting close to people in the train. Yay !

    LOL on Britney. She’s totally lost on her geography πŸ™‚

  5. With every little thing that seems to be building inside this particular subject matter, your points of view are generally relatively refreshing. Nevertheless, I appologize, but I do not give credence to your whole plan, all be it radical none the less. It would seem to everyone that your comments are generally not totally rationalized and in reality you are your self not really entirely certain of your point. In any event I did enjoy examining it.

    • good observation. I was on a blog break for 1 1/2 months and all I can muster for now is a bit of story telling. In the next few issues perhaps I could rationalize a bit more 😯

  6. so glad to see you back blogging.

    so palin is in alliance with northern koreans, i’d like to see that relationship progress πŸ™‚

    • thanks. Hope I can blog more often πŸ˜‰

      hehe.. that was a real WTF moment for Palin. Who knows, if she becomes president she make make them an ally πŸ™‚

  7. WTF can also mean “When Things Fizzles”

    “unfuck” – hehe, did you coined this word?

    Have you noticed most of those quotes were said by entertainers and jocks? Except for Palin, all are “no-brain-needed” professions.

    Welcome back, bw!

    • I thiught I heard it in a war movie.. couldn’t find it in the dictionary though πŸ˜‰

      There’s a couple of politicians in the list – Bush and Marrion Barry… and of course the controversial Russ Limbaugh. Goes to show that even seasoned professionals can have their WTF moments. πŸ™‚

      Thanks

  8. Nonoy might need to use the quote soon :-(((

    As of the quotes… it shows what kind of people are in the spotlight !

  9. jusko… sino naman gusto nila… si sarah palin????

    WTF!!!! talaga πŸ™‚

  10. Whatever Obama does, it is never enough for Americans. The US isn’t ready for a change. Old ways still rule. Old farts aren’t about ready to change their ways.

    I hope that woman wins the 500K lawsuit. It is about time someone stands up for these arrogant immigration officers who think they’re god.

    LOL on Jessica Simpson and Britney πŸ™‚

    • That seems to be the case, that Obama’s achievements are never good enough to some people.

      Interesting to see what will happen to the 500K lawsuit. She will need a high profile lawyer to get her case to take off that’s for sure.

  11. hahah…wtf…quotable quotes indeed πŸ˜›

  12. hello, hello.

    lethargy can be contagious. πŸ™‚ but i am not blaming you why at certain points of my blogging i was lethargic, too ha ha ha

    some folks can be as insensitive as that man on the train.

    spears remind me of alma moreno he he

    • Hi Bing. Hope you’re doing well.

      Funny you mentioned about Alma Moreno.. she sure had lots of WTF quotes. I remember a famous one.

      She said on air ” O mag-ingat po kayo at merong malaking rally sa university of belt πŸ™‚

      • me isa pang famous… in an interview she was asked what she can say about violence? she replied, “violence? di ako marunong nyan, gitara nga di ako marunong e!”

  13. That’s great, I never thought about Nostradamus in the OR
