    There are loads of medical ones invented by bored medicos treating awkward patients:

    FUR - found under rock

    NFFOD - Normal for Forest of Dean (an area of England whose inhabitants, according to received opinion, make the Beverley Hillbillies look like a convention of Harvard professors - utterly untrue in reality, before anyone complains)

    etc, etc

    A piece of British folklore was that bored housewives would signal to their lovers whether there husband was out by putting a box of soap powder in the window. Said powder had the brand name 'OMO', construed to mean 'old man's away'.
