“What does WTC stand for?”/“What Trade Center?”

Jokes about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center are numerous, although not politically correct. One early joke is:
Q: What does “WTC” stand for?
A: What Trade Center?

“What does WTC Stand for?...What Trade Centre?” was posted to the newsgroup alt.usenet.legends.duab on September 11, 2001.
Wikipedia: World Trade Center (1973-2001)
The World Trade Center was a large complex of seven buildings in Lower Manhattan, New York City, United States. It featured landmark twin towers, which opened on April 4, 1973, and were destroyed in the September 11 attacks, with 7 World Trade Center collapsing later that day due to the damage it suffered when the twin towers collapsed that morning. The other buildings in the complex were severely damaged by the collapse of the twin towers, and their ruins were eventually demolished.
At the time of their completion, the “Twin Towers” — the original 1 World Trade Center, at 1,368 feet (417 m); and 2 World Trade Center, at 1,362 feet (415 m) — were the tallest buildings in the world.
