In this case, Google is your friend. Like brewing, stupid internet acronyms are more interesting when you figure them out as you go.

Enjoy!

By the way, what does WTF mean?

I can't think of an abbreviation offhand that can't be clarified by applying "our friend Google." SWMBO as an acronym may have originated with HBT, but "She Who Must Be Obeyed" itself is the way Horace Rumpole, the barrister character of John Mortimer in his Rumpole of the Bailey series, refers to his wife Hilda. These stories are a fun read, and the BBC TV series wasn't bad.

But that's NOT where it originated.

The first use of swmbo was in the serialized novel "She" (who must be obeyed) by H. Rider Haggard published between October 1886 to January 1887....IIRC it is part of the Alan Quartermain novels...Remember the movie King Solomon's Mine

And the Sean Connery Character in the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.



You can read the novel online it looks like...Bibliomania: Free Online Literature and Study Guides


And Ursula Andres made a damn fine looking one in the 1966 film version.
