Rude, Unsophisticated, Uncouth

Via “11 True Stories Behind Tech’s Top Names“:

Yahoo is actually an acronym for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.” But according to the company, the team chose the name for its definition: “rude, unsophisticated, uncouth.”

Rude, Unsophisticated, Uncouth (RUU). I love it cuz I resemble that acronym (but not you, of course)! I gotta send a resume to Yahoo!. On second thought, nah. The vibrant and RUU-full Yahoo! no longer exists. From what I’ve seen and heard, I think it may have transformed into woeful Yahoo! I wish new CEO Marissa Mayer the best of luck in her effort to restore the company’s RUU-fulness.

    the good thing about bad haircuts is they always grow out and you can get them again.
