DRT - Dead Right There. (Doctors and nurses shorthand acronym for a patient found dead at the scene.)
DRTTTT - Dead Right There, There, There and There. (Nurses and doctors abbreviation, as DRT above, but used for pedestrian-train incidents. This outrageous acronym is an example of the human species' tendency to use humour when dealing with horrific trauma.)
FLKFLP - Funny Looking Kid, Funny Looking Parents
FOBIO - Frequently Outwitted By Inanimate Objects. (Ideal for anyone struggling with one of those ridiculous picnic tables, flat-pack self-assembly furniture, crisis situations caused by errant cars, computers, mobile phones, and the ultimate FOBIO challenge - removing the cellophane from a new CD.)
And if you see this around when visiting Down Under, you'll now know what it means:
GOFER - Genial Old Farts Enjoying Retirement.
GLAM - Greying, Leisured, Affluent, Married
and one just for Tim to use:
PICNIC - Problem In Chair Not In Computer.
