    That's it: post your favourite TLA (Three Letter Acronym).

    Multiple entrys allowed, but please refrain from the copy-and-paste-hundreds-of-TLAs-from-webpage thing, OK?
    Also cool if explanation / context is included.

    I even did a search to see if this silly thing has already been done before - :help:

    Anyway: my favourite is GNU - Gnu is Not Unix. Recursive acronyms are cool.

    Why does it have to be 3 letters? Show some love for the IHOPs out there yknow?

    If you can guess what this means, I will get you a cookie.

    And no, it has nothing to do with Pinky and the Brain.


    Edit: Oh god, I was just trying to find a pinky pic, and stumbled on this. It's the list of all of pinky's replys to "Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"http://snowball.frogspace.net/labnotes/aypwips.html

    Rock on
