Loads of recursive acronyms in super geeky computer land. e.g. WINE (Wine Is Not an Emulator), YAML (YAML Ain’t Markup Language), etc.

And we’re all in agreement that it’s only an acronym if it’s pronounced as a word, right? So TARDIS is an acronym, but WTF isn’t, because no-one pronounces it “wutuff”. I believe some people now actually pronounce ‘lol’ instead of laughing, but they can GTFO (pronounced, gut-foh).
