Further conflict in the Acronym War.

As I will sometimes do, I was listening to NPR this morning as I got ready for work, and the bored, soothing voice that is the hallmark of NPR copyreaders was talking about Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and I swear that he slipped at least once and said IUD.

This illustrates two concepts to me.
1) The Three Letter Acronym (TLA) namespace is clearly saturated and should be avoided at all costs.
2) I'll giggle like a little girl at just about anything.

Either way, I'm still banned from naming anything at work because I kept suggesting names like the "Computer Language Integrated Technology Operational Readiness Information System" and whatnot.
