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
