Sad-Cronyms: When Acronyms Go Wrong

September 4, 2010

We like alphabet agencies, made up of letters, made into acronyms. Sometimes, though, they make me sad in their wrongness.

Poor Sarasota County Area Transit. You’ve been around for over 30 years, so I guess it’s too late. But hey, at least it gives people visiting Fruitville, Florida a giggle.

And if you’re at the other corner of the country, you can always ride the SLUT.

The South Lake Union Streetcar is known colloquially as a trolley, because SLUS is not funny.

Enough said.

Got any sadcronyms in your area?
