I’m thankful for the invention of it. I can breathe smoothly while talking because there’s no need for me to say ‘National Aeronautics and Space Administration’; I’ll just mouth NASA. It’s more convenient and safe too, especially when in conversation about a person in the vicinity. It would mean no harm if I say TBT than ‘That Bastard There’ or ‘TIIC’ than ‘Those Idiots in Charge’.
FBI, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, always appear to me as a cool word. YOLO is nice too, ‘You Only Live Once’. But regardless of the meaning of an acronym, some of it just sound damn great and appropriate, but not the list below. I scraped the internet for the worst acronyms ever created. Here they are:
Meaning: The American Symphony Orchestras League
Side comment: It’s just that, it sounds like you know what hole.
Meaning: St. Thomas University of Public International Diplomacy
Side comment: I feel so sorry for the university, such an irony to be called stupid.
Meaning: Man-portable air-defense systems
Side comment: This is effin’ hilarious!
Meaning: American Society of Scotts
Side comment: I imagined it how the man would say “Hi, I’m the president of ASS”.
Meaning: Pulse Modulated Coherent Doppler-Effect X-Band Pulse-Repetition Synthetic-Array Pulse Compression Side Lobe Planar Array
Side comment: If I ever need to use this in a sentence (don’t think it’ll happen), I’ll refer you as ‘that thingy’.
What is the worst acronym?
