Acronyms


Noticed a landy with "countryside council for Wales" or somesuch on the
side, and it occurred to me that no-one questions such people driving around
on the scenery.

so, what we need is a suitable-sounding organisation. Then I got to
thinking of titles that provided suitable acronyms... of course, yer ideal
acronym has to give the impression that the title of the organisation was
chosen to get the acronym, not vice versa (mentioning no GLASSes.. :-))
so far, I've got:

Countryside Responsible Use Department

and bearing in mind that you seem to have to have a meaningless catchphrase
now as well...

Promoting Responsible Access and Tourism Safely.



Anyone else?
