WTF, Team!

An AT&T radio spot airing now features a high-school cheerleading squad chanting "WTG Team! WTG Team!" Their coach stops them, and they explain that they are saying "Way to go, team!" using IM slang. Why? "To save our voices."

Hmmm...."Way to go, team" has four syllables, "WTG, Team" has six syllables. 

Yeah - that should save their voices. Six less than four - must be cheerleaders at a public school.

(Hey - I just noticed that the Blogger post editor for Safari now has all of the same formatting widgets as the Firefox version!)
