Unfortunate Acronyms

TheWife used to work for a recycling facility run by the state department of the environment and so we've been doing all of our banking for years with the State Employees Credit Union, SECU. The acronym has a vaguely unsavory sound to it and it was remarked that it is a good thing that we don't belong to the Fordham University Credit Union whose acronym more properly belongs to Bank of America.

Thoughts immediately turned to the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, whose acronym CoNDoM would be funny in any case, but for a Catholic women's college is magnificent in its irony.

Other examples of funny/inappropriate acronyms?
