    did this once, it was hilarious. I played him as a dread pirate (with some cocktail of classes to start with), I was put into decisions pertaining a pirate's refugee island and defending that against the armada of a thrane (In Eberron) and needless to say it was a great success! At some point I was like:
    "Where is the enemies admiral! I want to slice and dice him up too (like I had just done)!"
    at wich my DM says: "you remeber that exploding ship? Well his hat is jsut now floating right beside your boat..."
    me: "Soooo... No slicing and dicing?"
    DM: "nope."
    me: "Aw shucks!"

    But reasonably common anyway. There is no clear rule that they are always exact initialisms.

    "Light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation": LASER or LABSEOR?
    "Radio detection and ranging": RADAR or RDAR?
    "Completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart": CAPTCHA or CAPTTTTCAHA?
    "Special executive for counter-intelligence, terrorism, revenge, and extortion": SPECTRE or SEFCITRAE?

    Exactly my thought-process, and besides, it was for a joke character, so I didn't really mind that the acronym sucked.

    Mechanized Extreme Operations Weapon.
