DC Comes to Their F***in' Senses, Drops WTF Brand

The company decided the branding wasn't worth the f***ing trouble.



Source: Newsarama

DC announced over the weekend that it would no longer feature its controversial "WTF Certified" branding on its April comics.  "Fuck that WTF shit," DC head honcho Dan Didio is reported to have said to someone somewhere. "We made our motherfuckin' point, so back the fuck off."

The WTF branding had been generally met with derision and mockery from every source imaginable and was widely proclaimed to be the dumbest move "since letting Devin Grayson write Nightwing". 

In a related story, DC announced that it was letting go of Samuel L. Jackson, their recently hired Director of Fucking Branding.  Jackson had spearheaded the WTF brand and is said to have ignored the many concerns about the initative from higher-ups.  "Branding, motherfucker," Jackson was often heard yelling into the phone at detractors. "Do you speak it?" 

In a memo circulated around the DC offices, Warner Bros. chief Kevin Tsujihara ordered co-publishers Didio and Jim Lee to "Get that motherfuckin' Jackson out of that motherfuckin' marketing department."  Didio and Lee were all too willing to comply.

In a final bit of WTF related news, comic book satire site The Outhouse announced today that if had officially recycled all of its "fuck" related jokes, with the exception of The Wire inspired quote comprised solely of variations of the curse word.  "Fuck fuck fuck.  Fuckity, fucking fuck fuck.  Fuuuuuuuuuck," said Outhouse reporter Jude Terror, completing the joke cycle.

It was a dumb idea in the first place, conjured up just so that Dan and the Gang's piss-poor material could look "edgy."

Those fucking fuck-ups. Is there anything the fuckers can't fuck-up? Also Deadwood did swearing better than the Wire.

"You know something? Zechs, the way he acts sometimes, the way he deals with shit... You would think a less enlightened man than myself, a cruder man than myself, a man less sensitized to the qualities and charms and value of Zechs- a man like that, not me, but a man like that, he just might call him a 'cunt.'"

Several words have entered our vocabulary based on acronyms with the F word. FUBAR, SNAFU, etc.
