In Somerville, Massachusetts, WTF takes on a different meaning: What the Fluff? As in Marshmallow Fluff. If the rumors are to be believed, a Somerville resident invented the creamy confection in the early 1900s. However, as Boston.com points out, the truth behind the oft-cited tidbit isn't so simple (similar marshmallow creams predate Fluff by decades). Still, that doesn't stop the bustling Boston suburb from throwing an entire festival dedicated to Fluff each year. The latest fest, which happened in September, featured Fluff-themed musical chairs, limbo, jousting and parkour.
