These have no relation to brewing at all, but being in IT I kinda like 'em.
The first is pronounced is an error commonly seen when you work on a support desk. (which I did for a while and barely escaped with my sanity)
It's an "eye dee ten tee error" Now let's look at it written normally....
ID10T error

The second is pronounced as it looks. PEBKAC.

Just do a google for "Flying Spaghetti Monster". There's more to it then I could reliably rattle off from the top of my head.

I have been wondering what that one was all about but I sort of got the inference.A common one I see on the AVS Forums is WAF.
WAF = Wife Acceptance Factor

SWMBO goes back a lot further than the greenboard. Rumpole of the Bailey uses the term for his wife. First produced in 1975. Somethings never change!
