2. What does WITWW stand for?

Where in the wide world

WITWW stands for "where in the wide world." People use this acronym to ask where something surprising or peculiar was found.

For example, if you happen upon the world's largest garden gnome and send a picture of it to your best friend, your friend may respond with "WITWW did you find that?" (If this scenario happened, BTW, you'd be standing outside a farm in Kerhonkson, New York.)


"WITWW did you get those leather pants?"
"Down at the thrift store. They have loads of 'em!"

Some have asked, "WITWW is Carmen Sandiego?"
