All right, all you wise "guys"; what's a word for an acronym that has an acronym embedded within itself?
An example of this is my username (tsuwm = the supreme universal wwftd master; wwftd = worthless word for the day).
A better (and more extreme, because it's recursive) example is GNU [GNU's Not Unix] {note proper use of contraction}.
