Now you're playing the wrong game. Initials are not words.

I'd say it counts. If I and a are words, then so are initials. And if were're going to get picky, the phrase is lo and behold. You want to get anal about it, let's get anal.

No, you can keep your asshole to yourself. I and a are words, j isn't, and i as used isn't. You saying they are doesn't change that.
Lo and behold is the common phrase but this is keep a word, delete a word so I couldn't use it. That is unless you say that 3 words are okay since, apparently, you're the boss now.
You might want to work on your anger issues, though.

I have anger issues? Look in the mirror. I'd say you're taking this game way too seriously, getting angry about it, and projecting that anger onto someone else.
