in communication,humor

if you’re going to use an acronym, do it with the cleverness of the guys from tincup espresso. they sensed an opportunity when seattle officials launched the south lake union trolley, since officially changed to the south lake union streetcar—like that’ll take now that the song, t-shirt, and ridetheslut.com are around!

She’s the fastest girl you’d ever see.
She’s the South Lake Union Trolley.
The S.L.U.T. is a bump and grind machine.
You can ride the S.L.U.T. down to the lake.
You can take her on a coffee break.
