UPI News Bulletin--

The Congressonal Acronym Authority (CAA) and the Committee for Allotment
of Acronyms (CAA) issued a joint statement Monday warning that all Three-Letter
Acronyms (TLAs) will have exceeded the TUT (Triple-Use Threshold) by
February, 2000.  They estimate that the ensuing confusion will have a greater
impact than that of the Y2K bug.  Therefore, in an emergency action Wednesday,
Congress passed a law requiring all new acronyms after January 1, 2000 to
have a minimum of four letters.  These will be known as MFLAs or MOFLAs
(which is more pronouncable).  The PFV of this law is $10,000 or six months in
jail, whichever is greater.
