    WIP is Work In Progress, and you probably already have at least one.

    Right here in this very FAQ forum is a scintillating list of abbreviations and terms: FAQ: The Absolute Write Dictionary

    It will change your life, and possibly, clean your windows.

    ... it's a typo. The word is actually "whip."
    Be pleased to strip naked and I'll demonstrate its usage.

    LOL, it wasn't like these comment's weren't foreseen. When using a word that sounds like whip, references is BDSM are usually not far behind.
