wtf - please explain

Today I learned that Fedora contains a package called bsd-games, which provides a binary called wtf. wtf is a tool to “lookup the meaning of one or more term[s]”. It can help to decipher acronyms that you encounter in your daily (online) life. Some examples would be: wtf wtf, wtf iirc or wtf ianal.

I came across this tool while reading a thread on the Fedora developer mailing list about the recent youtube-dl DCMA take down.
