    Acronym Game

    OK. I stole the "One Word Story" game from here (we're up to 16 pages!), so I figured it was only right to put something back.

    We are also playing the Acronym Game. Someone posts an acronym and those who follow try to find a meaningful, if goofy, string of words for the acronym other than it's original meaning. The person who posts the answer also posts the next acronym.

    CSS becomes Confederate States Steamers.
    NASA becomes National Acronym Studies Association.
    PHD becomes Piled Higher and Deeper.

    I think you get the idea.

    I'll lead off:

    Given that this isn't really a game (it could go on for ever) and merely serves to artifically inflate everyone's post count, I'm gonna drop out at this point!

    Fine! I will then! Didn't know they don't count!

    Having been in a barbershop group myself, I'm familiar with the true meaning of that acronym ("Medley of Spirituals" from the SPEBSQSA book is one of my favourites)!
