Thread Name: Funniest Acronyms of all time
Subject: RE: Funniest Acronyms of all time
when i first started working for the state, i wrote the following last verse to be rapped/sung to Coolio's Gansta Paradise


whatever happened to the good old words
now zapped by language impaired nerds
seems "hooked on phonics" didn't work for them
another day, another acronym
*****
god send us noah webster's son
the english speaker's salvation
to this paperwork land, where we chant the hymn
another day another acronym
*****
looking at these forms i don't have a clue
just what is what or who is who
am i just another working "anachronym?"
another day, another acronym
*****
these nonsyllabic words i just don't get
when did they downsize the alphabet?
you know our bureaucratic future's pretty grim
another day another acronym
*****
now it seems we're spending most our lives
in a scrabble cheater's paradise
so if your letter tray's full up to the brim
you can make another acronym
*****
it's time to make another acronym
*****
go on and make another acronym
