Just pulled this out of an article:

"As for the LX series, the first model was released in 2006, a fusion between the old-school design of the first Vespas with more modern features. Its name stands for the Roman numerals for 60 (to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the first Vespa scooter). "

Q.U.A.S.A.R. Quarter Liter Smooth Augmented Range

M.A.S.T.E.R. Multi-valve Advanced Super Torque Engine Range

L.E.A.D.E.R. Low Engine ADvanced Engine Range

I own an IT support company. We have more acronyms in our industry than you can shake a Johnson Rod at. One of the first ones you learn on the Helpdesk is PEBKAC . Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair... ID Ten T (ID-10-T) is another one but is pretty obvious...

I used to work quite some time for a company that had a bit of history at the industrial software side... let's just say the heavily overused the lifespan of the Unix System V, which says enough for those in the field.

With the history came a heavy load of acronyms. One was used in our customer software manuals, so I asked from my boss what it stands for. My boss had been there for ages. Surprise, surprise, even he didn't know...

These are awful. As in, why-even-bother-with-such-stupid-acronyms-in-the first-place awful. Aren't all valved engines multi-valve? Don't they all have fairly similar ranges? What is "low" about the LEADER engine? Using "engine" twice in the same acronym?

I'm going to assume these acronyms are based on much more mellifluous Italian words that have been retrofitted into English. You'll not convince me otherwise.

What the heck is wrong with 4T and 2T, which stands for "temps" in French, or similar words beginning with T meaning "stroke" in Romance languages?

Or the statistic that 90% of the Harleys sold in the last 20 years are still on the road, the other 10% actually made it home!

CHMFIC

I was sitting in the office with one of my companies Vice Presidents in
the Milwaukee Regional Office.

He called another Vice President in Illinois and told his secretary to tell him; that: "the CHMFIC from Milwaukee was on the line!".

I asked him what a CHMFIC was? Chief Mother F#@% In Charge
