Because some of us can't always remember what they are.

Your help with the list would be appreciated; I'll start.

We don't need to explain SNAFU, FUBAR or BOHICA, do we?   ;D

IIRC - If I Recall Correctly...that one gets used a lot.

Thanks, Rick.

De nada.

I keep that one as a favorite, along with http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/.  I have CRS Syndrome, Can't Remember Shyt.

I am sorry, but I have NO clue what BOHICA is?????
“My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together.

“However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”
Phil Robertson an elder in the church of Christ

Handy-dandy acronymfinder gives only two that seem applicable: Bug In The System, and Back In The Saddle.

Somehow it seems to me I've heard another definition though...

The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation.

There are a lot of definitions, but probably the one most meant is 'back in the saddle'.

PRESBYTERIAN - Best in prayer

ASTRONOMER - Moon starrer

DESPERATION - A rope ends it

THE EYES - They see

GEORGE BUSH - He bugs gore

THE MORSE CODE - Here come the dots

DORMITORY - Dirty room

SLOT MACHINES - Cash lost in me

ANIMOSITY - Is no amity

ELECTION RESULTS - Lies - let's recount

SNOOZE ALARM - Alas! No more Zs

A DECIMAL POINT - I'm a dot in place

THE EARTHQUAKES - That queer shake

ELEVEN PLUS TWO - Twelve plus one

MOTHER IN LAW - Woman Hitler

And last, but certainly not least:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA - An arab backed imposter
U.S. Coast Guard veteran, 1964-1968

Will Rogers never met Barack Obama. He would not like Obama.

I hate liberals. Liberalism is a disease that causes severe brain damage after it tries to suck knowledge and history out of yours.

Ahhh yes.... Now see Rick, the acronym-finder can only go so far. Already, we've surpassed its capabilities!
