Thread Name: Funniest Acronyms of all time
Subject: RE: Funniest Acronyms of all time
Back in '000, Little Hawk pondered the meaning of "Lowe Tech." on a tee-shirt. Lowe Tech. is - or at least, was - a high school in Windsor, Ontario (it's still there, but I don't think it is still a "technical" school, so it is probably just "Lowe Secondary School" or something prosaic like that today).

It was presumably named after a Windsorite who was a popular, colourful, and, for a time, successful bootlegger. Ended up doing time, and lost all his ill-gotten gains; died in poverty.

Btw, is Lowe a Scottish name? Many if not most of the schools in Windsor are named after Scots.
