Backronyms

While some are amazed at the genius of “Stuck on Stupid,” Exploding Aardvark points out that it’s an established military backronym for SOS. Wikipedia has a list of that and other backronyms.

My favorites:

  • H2SO4 (sulphuric acid) – Hot Hot Searing! Ouch Ouch Ouch Ouch!
  • Yugo – You’ll Usually Get Out
  • Nike – Needs International Kids Employed
  • KMFDM – Kenobi Made Farmboy Do Magic
  • RESPECT (George Galloway’s party)- Recently Expelled Scottish Politician Endorses Communist Tyranny
  • USA – Unbelievably-Sized Arsenals
