    The acronyms used by Government never cease to amaze me.

    Here's my nomination for the Best and Worst  - in One acronym.

    Australia recently elected a new Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd. His government certainly has a cleaner and greener focus.

    Recently they released a program relating to the reduction of carbon emmissions.
    It's called the "Carbon Reliance Abatement Program".

    The acronym, of course, is CRAP

    I thought that this was a worthy entrant to start off this new competition.
    Please add your entries.

    Seattle built a new streetcar thingy...originally naming it the South Lake Union Trolley.

    Then someone figured out it would be the Seattle SLUT, so it is now called the South Lake Union Streetcar.
