Since today is the first day of AWP, though the conference doesn’t really get started until tomorrow, I thought I’d tell you what “AWP” stood for. People are always asking, so I’ll tell you. Now, don’t click that link above and get misled. “AWP” actually stands for “All weather Patton.”
You see, back in the day you had to change your Patton at least twice a year. You had a warm weather Patton and a snow Patton. Warm weather Patton got better gas mileage, but snow Patton got better traction. Once all weather Patton was invented though, people didn’t need to switch. It had decent enough gas mileage to not need to switch to warm weather Patton and still got good enough traction in the snow. It wasn’t perfect, but it beat switching all the time and buying multiple Pattons.
It was truly a boon to humankind.
