Thanks to everyone who participated. Some people came up with their own acronyms and stories, which is cool.

The ones I provided are as follows:
1. IBSC - Irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. This was inspired by a drug company commercial that mentioned IBSD (“D”standing for diarrhea).
Let it be known that many of these drug company acronyms are news to doctors.
2. PCCA - pipe collectors club of America
3. PBI - paper bag institute
4. IAWPR - international association of water polo referees

#2, #3, and #4 came from my game “Beyond Balderdash”. These are real acronyms.

In the game Balderdash, there are words, acronyms, etc that people are not likely to know. Players make up their own definitions and try to convince the other players that their definition is the real one. It can be very silly and very fun, and that’s what I was going for with this thread.

TLA and FLA

These came from Tillie, and we all know she is one Tough Legendary Aussie, and a Feisty Lovable Aussie at that.

But they could mean:
Tasmanian Lapidary Association, and
Futuristic Legislators of Australia.
