Re: Snafu?

There was an American WW2 cartoon, can't remember the jist of it (some training aid to troops about what not to do) that featured Private Snafu. So it's an old term!

Re: Snafu?

Not sure to be honest, only seen it once or twice, couldn't find it on the net anywhere either.

Re: Snafu?

Reminds me of another term....fubar. Have never actually known what snafu stood for though.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.
