    Some years ago, the famous San Diego Zoo opened a second, larger
branch called the San Diego Wild Animal Park.  The Park is built around
an enormous open-field enclosure where the animals roam free.  To see the
animals, visitors ride on a monorail called the Wgasa Bush Line which
circles the enclosure.  Here's the true story of how the Wgasa Bush Line
got its name.
    They wanted to give the monorail a jazzy, African sounding name.  So
they sent out a memo to a bunch of zoo staffers saying, "What shall we
call the monorail at the Wild Animal Park?"  One of the memos came back
with "WGASA" written on the bottom.  The planners loved it and the rest
is history.  What the planners didn't know was that the zoo staffer had
not intended to suggest a name.  He was using an acronym which was popular
at the time.  It stood for "Who gives a shit anyhow?"
