Tums; It is not an Acronym, but a WORD. A definition. It’s in the Torah. It is translated as A “Wonderful Sign”. (Synonymous with “OS”) ??? ?? ????. Not necessarily in a Positive sense. But this term is currently used to describe a “Promise” or “Blessing” come true. Mainly, (Anecdotally) by Chassidic Rebbes. In the Sephardic, or Yemenite world, there is the equivalent ????”?, ????? ??????. The Sephardic (Authentic) Mekubalim are so defined.
And how do the snobby folks associate that with Food Stamps, Medicaid, and Welfare?
In Chumash it means any supernatural occurrence. I have no idea what the colloquial usage is.
I’ve heard it used by Rabbaim as a means of staying in Kollel, but never from a MO. 😉
and to add to GAW
WIC is with a VAV (2 actually)

Being a baal moifes these days doesnt mean what it used to.
I’ve hear elderly refer to it as mofsim, with the second mem standing for Medicare.
Is this a joke?!?!
