Acronym Contest!


The other day around the lunch table at the Plaza it was decided that PUMA should change it's name to NUTRIA. Or maybe that there should be a splinter group, or some sort of velvet revolution, I'm not totally sure, but the point is that we like the name and image of the nutria but lack a clever acronym. This is where you come in. Please submit as many acronyms for NUTRIA as you want. The best (possibly decided by vote sometime in the future) wins a t-shirt when we make them.

Beefa's entry :

the
New
Underground
Trendsetting
Rouge
Instigators and
Agitators


This is my best so far :

New
Urban
Theocrats
Reciting
Imbecilic
Acronyms

I'm sure you can do better so please leave your entry in the comments.

Brilliant. Joel is in the lead so far. Maybe I'll keep this contest going through the Open as entries seem to be slowly trickling in.
