acronyms: WTF?

Quote from a present project:

"Again, it is the GPC as used in the BWC and in the CWC that is the safeguard provided by the CBW governance regime against such challenges."

Class, two questions:

1. Can you imagine 338 pages of this?

2. If you know what's going on here, don't you think that the information in the book is probably not going to be news to you?

Personally, I can't keep it straight. At this point, I am no longer trying.

I don't know which I'd rather do, edit your Acronyms From Hell or the story that's currently sitting on my desk: "Jake, the Picture Painting Pony."

I feel a Forest Gump moment coming on . . .
