A real-life “backronym”: for some years now, the British police have had a computer “master database” titled HOLMES (Home Office Large Major Enquiry System). Clearly, some whimsical bureaucrat found it irresistible to think up a “suitable” title whose words, taken in order, spell out the name of the fictional great detective. I gather that there are a good many in the police, who find the title annoying: cutesy and condescending, and it’s hardly even proper English – “Large Major”, for crying out loud…!
Someone wrote a short story in which the criminals retaliate by creating an all-encompassing database of their own, for their nefarious doings. They give it a long and convoluted title whose initials spell out MORIARTY – the criminal mastermind who is Holmes’s great antagonist.
