This is something I played years ago. Take a common acronym tell us what the usual meaning is, then what your interpretation is. It can be something used commonly on the Internet or something you use at work. You can build on someone else's acronym.
Examples:

afk--away from keyboard becomes all fly kites (internet)
sro--supervised reorder becomes slow roasted onions (business)

The rules are as Follow.
1 Give the Acronym and what it usually means.
2 Give your interpretation of what it could mean.
3 You are allowed to Use an Acronym that someone else has posted but it must either be directly below that Acronym or include it in your post. Please keep it clean.
4. Any post that does not follow the rules will be removed.

Edit: corrected spelling of something
