Situation Normal All F**ed Up

funny word of the day: snafu

My mother told me the origin of this word recently and I had no idea...I guess it was a term developed in WWII. It probably wasn't funny when the army used it, but it is now.

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

Pronunciation: \sna-ˈfü, ˈsna-ˌfü\
Function: noun
Etymology: situation normal all fucked up (fouled up)
Date: circa 1941

: a situation marked by errors or confusion : muddle; also : an error causing such a situation
