OCINAGAYFOTC: Proposed new acronym

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

OCINAGAYFOTC: Proposed new acronym

Postby Kovalic » Fri Nov 20, 2009 3:33 pm

I've a proposal for a new acronym for the "Eats" section of the Forum: OCINAGAYFOTC.

This stands for "Of Course, It's Not As Good As You'd Find On The Coasts."

This would be added to any positive review of any restaurant here. Ever.

I think it might save one or two people an awful lot of time.

It could also be amended to more specific sub-acronyms:

OCINAGAYFIB - "...in Boston."
OCINAGAYFITMMIWIUTL - "...in the Major Metropolis In Which I Used To Live."

etc...

Helpfulness. I haz it. ;-)

My reply acronym, only in my head of course, has always been

WDYGTFBTT?

Why don't you go the F back there then?

Now I can use both of them in one reply! Thanks, JK.

Technically, an acronym should form a word in itself; here, you should use the term initialism. If you were a Coastie, you'd know this.

Dear O.J.

I'm offended that you'd so marginalize my name.

Wasn't that the name of the plane that bombed Hiroshima?

You mean the one piloted by Dolphin and Whale?

That was named after my sister. Between you and me, she was kind of a cow.

PS Sorry, I forgot the apostrophe; I'm married now, of course.

Are you trolling for a grammar argument here? Mr. Oseena Gay(hyphen)Fotzie?
