Wednesday Word: Snafu

Snafu - snafu is a magical word that can be a noun, verb or adjective. It springs from the World War 2 acronym Situation Normal; All F***** Up. It means to muddle, blunder, create chaos...which I mildly did by posting an entry for vintage_ads here instead on the weekend. Doh!
