oh, memorizing acronyms seems to me a mighty complicated way to

wouldn't it be simpler - easier - to just state the
object(s) rather than leaving the listener trying to interpret what's
meant by what's being said ;-)

AND - did you happen to notice in that URL, this phenomenon only
started in 1943 ;-)
do you know SPQR? or INRI? or Q.E.D.?
None of these are acronyms either.
