We usually use TWAS to refer to The Weird Al Show. When only WAS are use to refer to it, it'll usually be in upper-case (when not in a topic title).

It's saying the same as
"used to be:{insert something here}"


..............^ the topic used to be called that.

I just read through this entire topic, and noticed an acronym missing. This was one I picked in a few Yahoo Weird Al Groups.

OMA - Oh My Al

It's just nicer than OMG, IMHO.

Ok, I'll stop now.
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

Really? I've never heard of that one before. Sounds.......interesting, I suppose.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I dunno, it has kinda just stuck with me. Of course, there are different inflections you could use.

For the most part, it's similar to Oh my goodness. You use it when you're surprised or excited about something. But I think the Al gals would agree that OMA could stand for Oh, my...Al! :9~ *Especially when looking at pics, or seeing him in concert*

:lol:

Sounds good to me! I think it makes perfect sense, Patti.

That said, if I start using it all of the time in non-Al-related contexts and anyone lynches me for it, I'm blaming you. :P

j/k! It'd be my own stupid fault.

Go back to Marsbar's post on Oct. 12 and you will see these acronyms have already been posted. But thanks for playing.
