Fun With Acronyms: Print Media
  • People who write to Dan Savage's sex advice column, "Savage Love", often pick a publication name which can be shortened into an acronym describing their problem. HELP, LOST, SCREWED, etc. He complained about it once, but the practice continues.
  • An article about an improbable baseball pitcher in Sports Illustrated had the first letters of the words in the first sentence spell out APRIL FOOLS
    • The "Strange Universe" column in Sky and Telescope often has the first letters of each paragraph in the April issue spell out some sort of April Fools-related message.
  • This trope is probably why Air and Space Smithsonian magazine is usually abbreviated as "A&S" or "A&S Smithsonian".
