Default Needing help with abbreviations

Ok, maybe I'm just a noob but I see a lot of acronyms on these boards and I really don't have a clue what they mean. Does anyone have a cheat sheet?
Some examples:
SWMHBO
RDWHAHB

I know this is silly, but a little help will let me decipher the posts here a bit!

I think you may have the first one backwards: SWHMBO (someone who must be obeyed)
RDWHAHB: relax don't worry have a homebrew

Ahhh I see now!
SWHMBO - wife or significant other. That's a good one!
RDWHAHB - something I was doing anyway.

Any more common ones I need to know?

There's another you need to know...

PKU - it stands for Perky Korean Undergrads

You're off by a bit.
SWMBO: SHE Who Must Be Obeyed. Usually the wife. Not that I HAFTA obey my wife. It's just works out better for me in the long run...

Ah, I forgot about that one. Thanks for pointing that out. Looks like I don't obey either one!

Check the sticky FAQ in this section, Handy Acronyms. Lots of other good stuff there too. You will know you have arrived when you understand EAC. However that will take many hours to derive.
