Tough room.

Well, at least I thought that "OMG A TRU..." was the funniest thing I'd ever written.

See, she was text messaging, and... Get it?

Sigh. Never mind.

OK,I'll be the dummy.

I didn't get it until I actually typed it out longhand in this comment to ask what it meant. I thought it was "Oh my God, a true . . ." like a true story.

When I read this post today, I thought maybe "TRU" was an acronym.

I thought it was funny.

I found myself trying to figure out what TRU meant in textish, once I realized it wasn't an acronym, I read the post regarding the Darwin Award nominee and FOFLMAO.
