New York City has plenty of neighborhoods which are known by acronyms:

DUMBO - Down Under Manhattan Brooklyn Overpass
TRIBECA - Triangle Below Canal
SOHO - South of Houston
NOHO - North of Houston

And now - at least in Toobworld - there's a new neighborhood known by its acronym:

In a recent episode of 'How I Met Your Mother', Marshall and Lily moved into the Dowisetrepla area without really knowing what the acronym stood for. But of course, not wanting to look out of it or square, they acted as if they did.

The whole transaction was done on a weekend and it wasn't until the business week started did they learn the true meaning of the name:

Down Wind of the Sewage Treatment Plant.

For our sakes, it's a good thing we don't have smell-0-vision!
