New acronym for STABs?

#1
Yesterday, I was taken to task for using the word "STAB" in a speech. Not because of the "stupid" or "bastard" elements of the acronym, but "TA". Apparently, "TA" is as bad as "crevice", it is now so infra dig.

Now that it's the "Army Reserve", what's the acronym for STAB, STABism, STABishness, etc? I think that the putting to sleep of those terms would impoverish the language, if we have nothing with which to replace them.

"ARSE" is taken by this place and is liable to be confused: who can tell the difference between "Don't be an ARSE" and "Don't be an arse"?

Any ideas?

How about MONG for your ability to spell like a 12 year old Romanian pickpocket?

You should have told whoever that it was STABs, not Army reserves. We are not yankee doodles and it has been STABs for decades.

However, if we need to go the Army Reserves way, FARTS as suggested seems quite apt.
