On the use of acronyms, rule number 1

1. Do not turn your acronym into a swear word. Its not cool and will confuse your message.

Def hillarious...But maybe a swear word might be esier to remember than just any other acronym? Just thinking....

The acronym does not even rhyme with the list of words. How does "T" stand for "theft/copyright crime."

What Nigerians would do to create acronyms at all cost.

Naija and their love for acronyms.

But you do know twat isn't really in common usage in Nigeria...those who know, know but it probably doesn't mean anything to the majority!!

I used to drive past this sign everyday and it always had me in stitches.
I'm pretty sure it came down over two years ago though.

It's almost better than ASSFOOD school, but not quite.

as for the competition how about the Committee (of) United Nigerian Transporters...i leave you to decipher the acronym.
