German attempts world's most tenuous acronym
Why? BECAUSE, that's why
Aficionados of tenuous acronyms - in which great effort has been expended in forming a real word, often at the expense of linguistic common decency (try Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, for example) - will certainly want to raise their glasses to Professor Axel Temming of the University of Hamburg who has pushed back the envelope with his spendid BECAUSE effort:
Critical Interactions BEtween Species and their Implications for a PreCAUtionary FiSheries Management in a variable Environment - a Modelling Approach (BECAUSE)
To which the only comment required is: WTF? ®
Thanks very much to Leander Vanderbijl for spotting this excellent piece of acronymic tomfoolery.
