Huh, I don't think I've ever heard the red devils referred to by that acronym. Didn't take long to puzzle out what it'd be, but it threw me for a second. Tried MANU first, but didn't like it (because it's not an acronym, I couldn't care less about it's political incorrectness).

I knew it was Manchester United, (thanks to the many quizzes on this site which mention them) so I had the MUF part, just couldn't get the last letter - tried T for team, F for franchise, etc., - one more thing for this American to learn about soccer/football. They are clubs.

No idea who Drake is, and no idea about NSFW and GOAT. Tried HDML for the cable. Hubby and I are like the couple in the TV commercial. When our kids come to visit we hand them all our electronics and say, "Here, none of these work."

MUFC is quite commonly used. MANU, or suchlike would be an abbreviation not an acronym. GOAT? Never heard of that. American term?

I confess ignorance; I had never heard of Drake before this quiz. Other than Sir Francis. Being a pop culture curmudgeon hurts me with these quizzes, I suppose.

The only one I did not get was GOAT - and if the clue had been "Nickname for Muhammad Ali" I would have gotten it - since that is the name of a great book about him. Oh well...

Most of these technically aren't acronyms. It's only an acronym if it forms (and can be spoken as) a word; like "nasa" or "peta" or "awol". If you just speak the letters then its just an initilism; like "BBC" or "USSR". The weird one is always UFO; it's an initilism because most people say UFO, but the guy who came up with it ended for it to be an acronym, pronounced as Ufo. Juts a little bit of knowledge for you all there.

Clearly, they didn't scrutinize that word, except in retrospect. Then, as they freely and self-deprecatingly admitted, realized their mistaken assumption. But thanks for your condescension. That always makes the world such a better place. [/sarcasm]

GOAT is a little new, I agree. Greatest Of All Time. Commonly used for guys like Jordan, Tiger could be close NSFW is very common. Not Safe For Work. Usually comes up when you have friends who send inappropriate humor to your work email

There's a list of acronyms on Wikipedia. NSFW is not on there in case you were wondering. It's categorized as Internet slang. Anyway: NSFW means Not Safe For Work. And it is exactly what it says: Material containing nudity, pornography etc. I've seen it being used for violent content as well. Kind of like a spoiler alert.

Just a general point; there is a difference between an acronym and an abbreviation. If you pronounce the letters individually, this is not an acronym. An acronym is when a new word is formed, for example "SCUBA". ICBM, ADHD, etc are abbreviations, NOT acronyms.
