Sweet Acronyms (Revised)

One of the best with lovely meanings is
OMD: right there all rational thought is
gone, Oh My Darling, you are so sweet
she says and he replies - Oh My Damn -

Little knowing it might get her killed in a
dazed haste; the stranger has planned
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark while

but done - I've dreamed it away in a stream
of incredible acronyms - and there you see
how sweet acronyms rate, bringing such joy
to all in their wake!
