Recursive acronyms

Acronyms that contain themselves.

Like PHP standing for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor" and GNU meaning "GNU's Not Unix".

I already find acronyms frustrating but this is just TOO MUCH.

Did you know that if you Google "recursion," you'll be given the suggestion "Did you mean: recursion."

You know, I could've gone my whole life without knowing about these. But now I do know about them... and they are already ruining my life.

Thanks, Chols. Thank you so very much.

Essentially:

Now use a geometric proof to prove that
The TTP Project = The The The The…The TTP Project Project Project Project…Project

From XKCD: I'm So Meta, Even This Acronym

Not a recursive one, but still pretty cool.

I've known about recursive acronyms since the latter half of forever. Oddly enough, it doesn't bother me.

THIS WAS ALSO THE FIRST THINK THAT CAME TO MIND WHILE READING THIS ENTRY.

How about when people say "My MOC Creation." Not infinitely recursive, but similiar. (Granted, I hear it more often as just "My MOC" but regardless...)
