I walked into the barber shop just in time to hear a customer tell the barber, "...and you know how the government loves their anacronyms."
Anacronyms, I thought. What a great, if unintentional, mash-up. Acronyms whose original meanings have become outdated.
Like the GOP. The Republican Party may be Old, but it hasn't been Grand in years.
The IRS. You may feel like you've just been serviced, but I doubt if that was the original intent.
EPA. Under the last administration, it was more like the Environmental Politicization Agency.
DOD. Department of Defense. I preferred it when the DOD was the Department of War. Apparently, so did Dick Cheney.
ROI. Return on Investment. Last year we watched our Investment lose its way, and we doubt if it will ever Return.
MBA. Masters of Business Administration? Masters? After you fucking kidding me? Dude, you fucked up the entire world economy. Are you Masters of anything more complex than finding your ass with both hands? Really?
Feel free to add your own. I gotta go.
