How Do You Pronounce 'WWW'?
Tod Wicks
We all know how to type it but how do you pronounce it?  As far as I know it's the only acronym that uses more syllables than the words it's trying to describe:

double-you double-you double-you = six (count 'em, 6) tongue-twisting syllables versus the three words:  world wide web.

I've come to simply use a shorthand method:  dub-dub-dub.  Quick and easy, most people understand what you're saying in context.

Let me know what you think.

About
Tod Wicks
Some people have observed that there's occasionally something mechanical about the way Tod moves and speaks.  That's only because his joints don't get oiled enough.  He takes care of that by getting "oiled" with a can of beer.
