Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

OH YES, they certainly did. The internet lingo watchers across the world caught the humor in the acronym of the Wisconsin Tourism Federation months ago. The problem for Wisconsin was "what to do about it?".. For all those who need it explicitly spelled out: "W.T.F" was the laughing matter but not to the Wisconsin travel industry. There was no "LOL'ing" from the 30 year old coalition that supports the states travel industry. They learned of the fun being had over the acronym a year ago by bloggers. They decided to change the name as quietly as possible to the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin. (T.F.W) Julia Hertel, the groups admin in the Madison suburbs of Sun Praire said, "We don't want people snickering! It's not a laughing matter.."
(SMH well not NOW Julia. You ruined it. But before the name change, Yes. Yes, it is was very LOL funny.
