Worst acronym ever


I cannot imagine a worse acronym to be hung on an organization. The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio “has asked natural gas utilities to begin inspecting a section of customer gas lines for leaks that since 2000 have caused one death and $970,000 in property damage in four fires.”

Yes, that’s right. PUCO.

I think that surpasses the previous title holder CREEP (Committee to Re-ElEct the President). There’s a fun story how that acronym came about that I once heard William Safire tell it on C-Span.
