Come again?

A quote from a Wall Street Journal article delving into the secrets of the Finnish education system:

"Ask an obvious question and you may hear "KVG," short for "Check it on Google, you idiot.""

Assuming I'm reading that acronym right, that's not quite what it means. The closest English equivalent I can think of would be "RTFM". But YMMV. IMHO.

You're right, the V is critical... Another one in common use is EVVK, or the stronger version EVVVK, meaning "I couldn't care less" or "I couldn't #%&!ing care less" respectively.
