OMG! WTF? There are just TMA nowadays. What am I on about? Too many acronyms, that’s what: and there are more of them all the time. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to your local evangelical church you find yourself wondering why the hell they are so keen on Kentucky Fried Chicken – only to discover that, well duh! KFC obviously stands for Knighton Free Church. Only it used to be written out in full…
Facebook is one of the worst places for this, and if you don’t know the lingo it can drive you insane. What is the MSM and why does nobody trust it? What is BDSM and is it rude? I know what L’s and G’s are but now they’ve been joined by B’s and T’s and sometimes Q’s as well. If you go to see a film it can be CGI; if you watch a TV programme it can be ICYMI. If you have a facebook conversation as well as the obligatory LOLs and OMGs it can be peppered with CBA’s, IKWYM’S and ISWYM’S. SWIM?
Enough is enough. I’m suffering from acronysm. Or acronicism. Or acronyism. Or maybe even anachronism. My head is close to exploding: it’s all TMI baby and I can’t even say TGIF because it’s Monday so I am going to sod off PDQ and go live in a hut for a while until it all blows over.
