    Fucking initials, I spend half my life now googling them to work out what they mean, only to find they nearly always mean fuck all.

    Don't worry about it - most three letter acronyms are just TLAs anyway....

    Or, indeed, is it an initialism?

    For the pedants out there....(or I should say other pedants out there )

    The broader sense of acronym inclusive of terms pronounced as the individual letters (such as "TNT") is sometimes criticized, but it is the term's original meaning[1] and is in common use.[2] Language authorities such as dictionary and style guide editors are not in universal agreement on the naming for such abbreviations: in particular it is a matter of some dispute whether the term acronym can be legitimately applied to abbreviations which are not pronounced "as words"; nor do they agree on the correct use of space, case, and punctuation. See the Nomenclature, Lexicography and style guides and Orthographic styling sections below.

    He's from Canada...


    Origin of Canada
    The founding fathers of Canada were trying to figure out what to name the country, but they couldnt decide on a name. They figured to put the letters of the alphabet in a hat and draw them at random.

    They pulled the first letter out.
    “C eh?”
    Then the next one,
    “N eh?”
    One more,
    “D eh?”.

    C eh N eh D eh?
