Default Acronyms used here...

now my dad was in the service, he used (still does) acronyms all the time, so most of the time i dont have a problem figuring them out, but ive seen a few here im still scratchin my head on

LHBS-Local Home Brewing Supplier (easy)

WIP or BIP-Work In Progress/Brew In Progress (ok no biggie)

SWMBO-what the hell is this?? I am sure its your significant other from context, but i cant seem to work this one out.

if there are others you can think of (humerous or not) throw em up with their explinations

two of my faves are
snafu-situation normal , all fouled (or the other word) up

fubar-fouled (or the other word) up beyond all repair

Or the fact that there is ALREADY a thread with this info easily found....and that's why we do the game...because folks ask without looking around.

But he is a party pooper.
