VW vs Volkswagen

In other languages it's much shorter.
Like WWW (pronounced: WayWayWay or WiWiWi) in German, Dutch and other languages.

WTF, also.
Maybe anything with a W?

you should try calling it "dub-dub-dub" instead of actually pronouncing the full W three times

Silly, it's pronounced
TRIPLE-DUB.

As in triple-dub-dot-blogger-dot-com.

I guess I learnt something new today. I didn't know that it was common to pronounce 'w' as 'dub'. Using that pronunciation will indeed make the acronym shorter.
