Have you noticed all the acronyms in advertising lately?
Millions more yes?
LBL - light bladder leakage. Hmm . . . can the word "light" ever be in the same sentence as "bladder leakage"? I don't think so.
ED - erectile dysfunction. Let's be clear; who's feelings are we trying to not hurt? Shouldn't we really be figuring out why the wiener isn't working?
UTI - urinary tract infection. Oh, let's just not go there - ever.
IBS - irritable bowel syndrome. What does this mean really? Why are anyone's bowels in a bad mood? Can't they just drink vodka?
Every time I turn around (in my princess finery - I spin!) I'm unwillingly listening to a commercial talking about some set of letters I never knew described a "syndrome."
One of my newest peeves is the RLS. Really? Restless legs are now a syndrome?
How about these I am coining?
IIG - irritated in general. Is there a pill for this?
CLIM - can't look in mirror. I am skeered what I'll see first thing in the morning. I know I need a pill for this.
BFH - bastard from hell. The guy on the freeway that refuses to let me merge into traffic. There really should be a treatment for this condition.
Tell me your favorite acronyms! Let's start a revolution!
