Creative, Witty, or Humorous Acronyms

Below you will find an alphabetical listing of creative, witty, or humorous acronyms. It is evident that those responsible for naming many of these organizations or projects put some real thought into the imaginative acronyms by which they're commonly known.

Not all of the groups or projects listed below are still active, while others may have taken on new monikers. Be aware that some of these abbreviations, acronyms, recursive initialisms, and backronyms may have completely different meanings in different locales. If no specific city, state, province or country is listed for a group or organization, this usually means it exists in several different locations.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: We're cognizant of the fact that some of the organizations listed below fail to use proper punctuation in their names. Rather than correcting this, we present their names as they normally refer to themselves.
