I like military acronyms that were obviously created backwards. Mostly for missile systems:
Hawk = Homing All the Way Killer
Hellfire = HeLicopter Launched FIRE and forget

I also like the one that were created forwards (words first, abbreviation later) but when they didn’t think too hard about the implication:
High-Explosive Multi-Purpose = HEMP
Landing Ship, Dock = LSD
Pedastal-Mounted Stinger = PMS

I spent a number of years as a contractor/trainer to the US Air Force (airborne RADAR jammers - think Kelly McGillis in Top Gun :slight_smile: ). The military in general seems to be the birthplace of many an acronym, including second- and third-generation ones (when the first letter of an acronym is used in the creation of another acronym).

My all-time favorite, though, is NAFOD.
This is used to describe particularly hell-bent fighter jocks.
It stands for-

If this gets noted in your file, well you might get some interesting missions, but you won’t be first in line for that airline job when you retire.

I once knew a lovely young lass
Who thought that my writing was crass;
My efforts you’ve seen
To keep these poems clean;
But at this point she can just kiss my astigmatism.
