Not very good acronyms

Some HE acronyms really aren't very good are they?

I used to work at UEA, home of the acronym (there was talk of setting up an ARC - Acronym Research Centre – there but INGOTG*) so am pretty familiar with the darned things (indeed can kind of claim one very mildly entertaining one as my UEA legacy – the School of Nursing and Midwifery – NAM).

My favourite at the moment is the University Finance Directors' Group BUFDG (see link) which is pronounced either as Buff-dog or Boo-fudge, depending on which faction you support. I really think they should get together with the Council of Heads of Medical Schools, CHMS (known colloquially as Chums - see link) because 9 out of 10 dogs prefer them.
