Default Does anybody else have this problem?

Everytime I see "AWB", I immediately think "Average White Band".

Average White Band's 1974 Album, "AWB" had a distinctive and memorable cover:



So "AWB" just stuck with me.

How about "FTW"?

Now, it's "for the win", but it used to have a very different meaning.
