    Unity: “PIE – Precise Infallible Exterminator. I never said my acronym spelled ‘unity’.”
    GODOT: “I forgot. I’m dealing with the stupid one.”

    Given just how awful RL US military acronyms can get (using letters other than the first of a word, for example, or ignoring words entirely, just to fit a word that someone thinks sounds good), it’s hard to see how anything that GODOT, or Unity for that matter, might come up with could actually be worse. “Wired” has run a whole series of articles on the topic. Two examples, culled more or less at random: ARGONAUT (“Applied Research reGarding Operationally Novel And Unique Technologies)” and STURDI (“Strain Gage Calibration Using Response to Dynamic Input”). Google “bad military acronyms” for many, many more.
