That’s not quite as disappointing as when the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance Party dropped the Conservative and Reform from their name, but really, people need to embrace these little moments of hilarity.
This is ridiculous beyond words. What juveniles our alleged grownups are. They have had that acronym for 30 years. Now, because that acronym is also an acronym for something else they are going to change it? Wusses.
It is like the hand gesture “the shocker”. Because someone came up with a dirty meaning for another configuration of your fingers, now kids get suspended for it. Where does it end?
So if we start an internet meme using a dirty word within the acronym USA, like maybe “you stupid a**hole”, are we going to change that too?
I wonder how many others are going to start changing their names because some could conceivably attribute and alternative meaning to their acronym?
