Much Drama in Connecticut Over 'WTF' Lawn Sign Supposedly it means 'Woodbury wastes taxpayer funds' By Newser Editors and Wire Services Posted Sep 8, 2016 1:23 PM CDT 32 comments Comments (WFSB) (Newser) – A Connecticut homeowner who planted on his lawn three large wooden letters that spell "WTF" is rankling neighbors and town officials who say the message is offensive, the AP reports. WFSB-TV reports the phrase "Woodbury wastes taxpayer funds" is written on the letters along Main Street in historic Woodbury, a town of 10,000 residents, but of course, "WTF" also stands for something else. This isn't the first time homeowner Thomas Arras has fought with the town and the Woodbury Historical Commission over his handcrafted protest messages. A previous sign targeting First Selectman William Butterly Jr. read: "Butterly utterly utterly disappointing." Butterly isn't affiliated with a political party. He says he's outraged by the "WTF" sign but there's not much the town can do about it without changing its rules.
