Unfortunate Initialisms

Almost everyone is familiar with penisland.com, and it’s obviously deliberate. From their site:

Whether you’re looking for a long and skinny pen, a thick pen, a fountain pen that squirts ink, or even a black pen, we have just the one for you.

But what about those unfortunate initials? I just received a letter from the Farm Service Agency, One of the paragraphs was entitled;

Continuous CRP. A brief excerpt follows;

The Continuous CRP program is a voluntary enrollment program. To be eligible for enrollment in the Continuous CRP, participants and acreage must meet certain requirements. (Conservation Reserve Program)

There absolutely no way I can read that with thinking about the Continuous Crap program, and how appropriate that it’s a government program. Thankfully, enrollment is voluntary.
