Work on the light-rail line in Seattle has almost been completed for what officials call the South Lake Union Streetcar (SLUS), but locals have taken to using the word “Trolley”.
According to seattlepi.com, more than 100 people have brought “Ride the S.L.U.T” t-shirts from one coffee shop.
The t-shirt’s creator, Jerry Johnson, said that the $50.5 million project had caused a lot of problems, but the acronym made it all worthwhile.
“I especially like the dust and the big holes in the ground," Mr Johnson told seattlepi.com.
“But we can't wait to have the SLUT.”
Seattle transport officials denied calling the service a “streetcar” to avoid the acronym.
