Meanings: “WTF”

April 17, 2012


1.  World Taekwondo Federation

2.  Welcome to Facebook

3.  Why the Face?

4.  What Tom-foolery

5.  But of course it especially means Wrist to Forehead — since the 19th century the universal sign of dismay, usually performed with excess drama.

For other lesser possibilities see the Urban Dictionary.
