Phonetic Alphabet: Originated in the US Navy.
e.g. Alpha, Bravo, Charlie and so on..
The expression "cuss like a sailor" made the Navy look unprofessional or so they say-so in an effort to clean up the language used by Officers and Superiors. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
was adopted and has since then spread to the online community.
This ofcourse is means What The Fuck expressed with more emphasis on the *What the FUCK* of an alarming situation.
