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
Not me, of course: I work at night.
I spent a number of years as a contractor/trainer to the US Air Force (airborne RADAR jammers - think Kelly McGillis in Top Gun ).

BOHICA - Bend Over, Here It Comes Again
FART - Fast Action Response Team (We actually use this!)
CUNT - Civilian Under Naval Training
