WSU joke

WSU stands for Washington State University, you know that, right? Like everyone in the campus does, WSU can be pronounce as "wassu" or "wazoo", which is kind of the same. I don't know the fact that wazoo means "Ares" and I pronounce it in front of the WSU staff and of course they don't mind as I appears to be a foreigner who don't know too much in depth in English, and they don't arise the matter. Until recently, I found the word "wazoo" in somewhere and I plug it into the dictionary, and it says "ARES". Then I plug in "ARES", and it says "ASS". That is really a bad thing, isn't it? Well, there are a lot of my friends who have English mother tongue do not know the what "wazoo" means. I am considering to pronounce WSU as W S U hereafter.
