What's your favourite acronym?

    The Bardposted 7 years ago

    this is mine "TLA" - used to identify acronyms.

    eg: The CIA is a TLA

    The FBI is a TLA

    A TLA is a Three Letter Acronym

    LOL! wink Oops there's another!

    What about LMAO - thats a FLA (four letter acronym - which is still only a TLA really) or ROTFLMAO that's an ELA. (Eight Letter Acronym). Confusing innit? wink

    When I did my Corporate America stint, I must have done a gazillion presentations to internal groups, clients, etc. Every now and again, the numbers didn't seem to add up. So we would put our own spin on them and footnote them as "M.I.U., (year)". Little did the audience know that M.I.U. stood for "Made It Up". Never was questioned on it, though!
