How many of these acronyms are old? I know that TTFN dates from the late Forties. From Tommy Handley's radio show ITMA (It's That Man Again).

Let's have the history of some of the others.

Bert.

P.S. The oldest acronym that 'I' know of is SPQR (Senatus, Populusque, Romanus, 'or something') from the Roman Republic. But that one is not much use to us.
