So...I guess this page is for Appellations Creatively Relevant, Occasionally Nonsensical, Yet Meaningful?
Yes, I guess it is. XD It would be great if you could incorporate that into the page somewhere.
Done! Hope it's not too awkwardly placed.
Alternatively, I'd like to suggest
Alone Characters Replacing Original Names Yields Musing Sentences
Shouldn't this page name make up an Acronym? How about Fun Acronym Games?
The current title is fine. I don't think spelling FAG is very funny.
Do a person's initials count? I'm sure that would make it also a Punny Name, but here's the example:
This page is being split due to length. It has reached a size where it is in danger of causing server performance issues. See this thread for details.
To alleviate this, I split off the current content along the lines of the current folder structure. New examples should be placed in the appropriate media sub-pages.
No mentions to the Overly Long Gag Madao chapter from Gintama? Really?
Okay wait. The page itself says initialisms shouldn't be put on the page, but the page has Fun With Initialisms as a redirect. Why?
Because the most common use of "acronym" is as a misnomer for "initialism"? Likewise, many people say "backronym" (yecch) when "acrostic" is the correct term. To put things straight; laser is an acronym, MIME (as in file type) is an acrostic (mimes existed long before computers), HTML is an initialism.
Little late, but the page has been fixed so it says initialisms are OK.
BASIC was originally known as the Dartmouth Oversimplified Programming Experiment. Guess why they changed it.
What a shame; I would have really liked to work with Visual Dope instead of Visual Basic in college.
