This is starting to sound like a thread of acronyms that people use on their auto license plates and hope the Dept. of MV does catch the meaning.

We just had one in NH. A woman had the same License Plate on her car for 15 years and got a letter that it was being revoked and she had to turn in the plate. It got so much press coverage around the country, the Governor of NH stepped in and let her keep her plate.

I guess it's not exactly an "acronym", but same theory.

Her plate was "P B 4 W E G O". Pretty sage advice.

Governor says ‘PB4WEGO’ license plate won’t be recalled after all

There is one word in the title, and it's misspelled.

From my interactions with former work peers who were younger and had been in the sandbox as USMC fire squad leaders (we worked for the city immediately adjacent to Camp Pendleton), FUBAR is sort of WWII era, while BOHICA is a much more Desert Storm, Afghanistan-ish term.
