Embarrassing Typo

#1
Todays issue of the Sydney Morning Herald (smh.com.au) carries the story of reflective vests issued to Aboriginal Community Liason Officers. These officers attend incidents like alcohol fuelled riots and such, and to make them more visible, police decided to issue them with flourescent green vests, with ACLO prominently displayed. The vests were ordered, and duly arrived, but on issue were found to read ALCO. Oh, how we laughed. Any more unfortunate acronyms out there?

Abbreviations and acronyms tend not to include conjunctions or prepositions, so when I noticed that there was a course in the offing that would issue a certificate following the successful conclusion I had a sudden vision of how it would look when framed and hung in the longdrop.

I was told that it would be a doddle even for a Luddite like myself, and began looking forward to passing this test of 'Computer Literacy and Information Technology.'

You can imagine my disappointment when the humourless barstards who ran the thing decided to include the conjunction in the abbeviated title on the nearly posh diploma, and the sweaty, pie-eating Puritan who 'taught' us handed me a cert for a CLAIT course...

Cnuts ! :evil:

Stuart Hall, the erstwhile presenter of 'It's a Knockout' and he of the insufferably pompous mien, used to own a small (or is that short?) chain of travel agents' in the NW of England.

CRap as they were formally known.....

(GCP)-(Commando Parachute Group) is specially trained unit of approxiamately 180 para-commandos. The unit is composed of the division's former Commando de Renseignement et d'Action Profondeur (CRAP)(Deep Recon and Action Commando)teams. The GCP performs LRRP missions, pathfinding, DA, and in extremis hostage rescue operations.
Recognition features were skin tight OG trousers, garlic breath and a turd for a "Brevet"

Edited to add they were crap and all
