How the fuck am I supposed to memorize all that?

It's like the list of all the abbreviations of the government divisions and organizations in the whole world.

CIA = Caught in the act
KGB = Killer Green Bunny
SAS = Suck-Ass Sodomite
WTO = Wrong Time Orgasm
UNICEF = United Nations Induction of Children into Educated Fornication
..and whatever else.

Oh pless.. there's already enough in this world to mind. We need not add some unnecessary detour just to communicate.
