From my own warped version of a college catalogue English 413 - APE: Acronyms Please Everyone, a course specially designed for those charged with naming projects, procedures, departments, initiatives, movements, plans, organizations, new diseases, drugs, bugs and syndromes. Help avoid ghastly mistakes like naming your NGO a swear word in a foreign language, create acronyms that fall lilting from the tongue, find ways to undercut your competition with a look-a-like acronym to match your look-a-like product, artfully dodge embarrassing moments when you would otherwise have to pronounce the entire 15 syllable name of the disease you discovered. Join us for this 4 week course and bring your own challenging project for the class to analyze, copy and/or steal. Government officials - Need help coming up with the most awkward acronym possible? Need to find a way to justify ordering all new stationary for your entire department of 15,000 employees by changing just one word in your department name? Want to out do your other State competition in vying for the most incredible acronym any Federal oversight committee has ever seen? Well, there will be a special 8 week session just for you coming this fall to help address these and other challenges peculiar to the demands of the public sector.
