The body charged with attracting more visitors to the midwestern state will now be known as the Tourism Federation of Wisconsin (TFW), in an attempt to put a stop to the jokes.
It seems that the federation was unaware of - or unconcerned by - the modern meaning of WTF until its acronym featured on a blog that compiles unfortunate corporate logos earlier this year.
Commenters wondered whether an expression of foul-mouthed astonishment was the best way of boosting tourism to a state that would not be an obvious choice for most holidaymakers.
The federation, a coalition of local trade bodies, has now amended its website to reflect the more anodyne name, which has been changed for the first time since it was founded in 1979.
The website also features the group's new TFW logo, complete with squashed text to find room for the extra word "of".
But the federation's corporate makeover is only partial. Its website is still listed on Google as the Wisconsin Tourism Federation, and the first button beneath the logo is titled "About WTF".
The federation, which was not available for comment, is not the first organisation to change its logo to avoid public derision.
Last year the for the Office of Government Commerce withdrew its new £14,000 logo, after realising that it resembled a risqué image when turned on its side.

I just discovered that my boyfriend isn't who he said he was. He told
me he's 24 and he's actually 32. He told me he's an aspiring actor
and that he's signed to be in a movie with Ashton Kutcher this winter,
and he's actually a mailman. He told me he's Italian and he's
actually Portuguese. We've been dating for over a year so this all
comes as such a huge shock to me. He even told me the wrong name. I
thought his name was Antonio and it's actually Kevin.
What should I do? It's not like I just started dating him a month
ago. It's been for 14 months. I trust him and love him. We were
planning on moving in together and that's why he came clean. I need
advice!!! I need answers!!!
Leave your advice here. You can stay confidential. Thank you!!!

As annoying as she and her douche husband are, Heidi Montag sure has some nice puppies... err... puppy. She just celebrated her 23rd birthday today! Douchebag Pratt got her a new puppy for her birthday and Heidi couldn't be happier:
"Spencer gave me the best gift ever, a maltipoo puppy that we have named Dolly."A) PETA raid that house NOW!!!
B) Hmmm... a "maltipoo???" Remember this from just yesterday's celeb news?
I do not like Heidi Montag. Minus 7 points for bragging about your new maltipoo a day after Jessica Simpson's was eaten by a coyote.
(But I do like her puppies.)
(I mean puppy.)
(I love animals.)

Minus 20 points to Shakira and Pinks' assistants for letting the two wear the same dress to the VMAs the other night. So... who wore it better??? I'm going with Shakira personally. I'm not digging Pink's tramp-stamp thigh. Or her penis. (I'm just kidding -- it's just an old joke -- she really looked great last night.)

Emma Watson may have arrived to the Brown University campus via personal helicopter drop-off, but plus 10 points to her for trying to drop the celebrity and become a regular college student.
I do hope that it will be only a short time before I am known as “Emma Watson, the student from the UK” rather than “Emma Watson who starred in those Harry Potter films”.
Sure! Soon she'll be getting wasted at frat parties and turning fellow drunkies into frogs for the hell of it. Nothing like a drunk witch....
This was taken from my celebrity gossip blog which I would love for you to visit and frequent. Oh yes. Here's a link to it RIGHT HERE. Lovely.

Kirsten Dunst wondered around Tokyo yesterday dressed up like "a Japanese school girl." Do school girls in Japan really go to school looking like that??? If so, I hope the teachers are constantly on acid. For walking around like a nutcase in a foreign country, plus 9 points.

I'm 36 years old and am single. I'm starting to feel like I may not
find my "Mr. Right" because I'm getting older and everyone I meet
seems to be just 'a fun night.' So I went on a local dating website
and gave it a shot. I met a really nice guy. We talked on the phone
for 3 hours one night and really hit it off. We made plans to go out
on a blind date and I was so excited. We seriously seemed to click
over the phone!!! That weekend we went out on our blind date...
and... he weighs 375 pounds. Looks aren't terribly important to me,
but I do need to be attracted to my mate. We had great conversation
and a great date but I don't know if I can get by his gargantuan
gerth. Does this make me a bad person? Am I shallow? What should I
do? Help people!!!
Leave your advice for Ursula here! She'll be coming to see what you say! Thanks!

I think this picture is awesome. Not because it's Rihanna with a cartoon character (although that too is rad), but because Tweety Bird is giving the rock hand sign!!! Innocent bird??? I think not! Hard partying rock star??? YUP!
