City Rejects ‘WTF’ Campaign

FRUITA, Colo. (UPI) — Officials in a Colorado town said they won’t be giving official approval to a marketing campaign using the initials “WTF.”

Clink Kinney, city manager of Fruita, said the city decided not to incorporate the initials — which stand for “Welcome to Fruita” as well as a popular text messaging and online chatting abbreviation for a profane phrase — after asking for opinions from the public, USA Today reported Wednesday.

Officials considered the campaign after a local couple printed out 2,000 “WTF” decals and distributed them to local businesses and residents. Kinney said the decals may have proven popular, but many residents said they did not want the initials representing their town.

“The hard part is, the people you represent and the people you market to don’t always agree,” Kinney said.

Kinney said local businesses are still free to use the initials for marketing, but the campaign will not be getting a stamp of approval from the city.

    Is someone too tightly-wrapped in Colorado? Someone did it right. That is, they didn’t put a question mark after the F.
    If they’d put a question mark after the F, it would be different.
    Some people are thin-skinned, and some are tightly-wrapped. I don’t see what the big deal is, since everyone knows that WTF means What The Flimflam? WHO could be upset about that? Lighten up, you wannabe government employees.
    A sense of humor is one of the things that separate real people from those who are willingly devolved – and should live in Chicago. WTF or WTF? Enquiring minds DO want to know. Yep.
