Can you help me out?



The word is something made of letters, like an organization, and each letter stands for a word. Like 'FDA' or 'PETA' are examples of this word. What the hell is the dang word?!

What's the context of this word? I'm afraid you gave us so little to go on I'd be stabbing in the dark.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

The word she was looking for is "acronym." I'm going to close this thread now so people don't keep coming in and saying the same thing over and over again.
