Funny Acronyms - to make you Smile

Building Acronyms is another one of my favorite pastimes. They are usually formed by using the initial of each word in a group, such as from :North AtlanticTreaty Orgnaization we derive the acronym NATO. I like to create funny acronyms however just for fun, obviously.

The list below is populated by 'reverse acronyms', I call them. They are fun to think about and build, because we start with the acronym by supposing that each word IS the acronym and we try to bring out a meaning of some sort, Thesaurus style - sometimes funny and often far-fetched. Actually the 'reverse acronym' is not a meaning but rather an 'association', a group of words that may make you think of the word. A 'BEE' is a "Buzzing Energetic Extractor". The 'association' is very important because it would not make sense just to say that BEE stands for "Book Editing Exercise", for example.

I keep adding new ones here from time to time putting the most recent at the bottom of the list. I also encourage you, gentle readers to add your own acronyms in 'Comments' below.

I think that it would be fitting to start with the word 'Acronym' itself.

The acronym is an 'invented' word that anyone can make up. It helps us to remember something or a series of things. For example a student needs to remember the important points for an essay called "My Holiday Abroad" that he is preparing for an exam. In the first paragraph he/she writes about the plane trip. The second paragraph the arrival, the airport, the hotel. Then comes a description of the city where they are staying, Rome for example. The things that they saw and did, the restaurant where they had an excellent meal, etc. After preparing and studying the essay at home, all the student has to remember is the acronym "TART" (T from trip, A from arrival, R from Rome and T from things).
