January 28, 2009 question

WAGDA is A) Washington State Geospatial Data Archive, as three of you knew: Karen M (the M stands for Geographic Information Systems Expert), Karen H (the H stands for Holistic Surveyor), and Heidi. What you may not know is that all of the selections were moderate variations of real acronyms:

WAGD: Waste Anesthetic Gas Disposal
WAGER: Weekly Addiction Gaming Education Report
WAGES: Women's Action to Gain Economic Security
WAGE: World Affairs and the Global Economy

So don't worry, you weren't fooled by my creativity. You were fooled by the avalanche of available acronyms (AAA). Hmm . . . that probably won't stick either, will it? Here's today's question:

What does the acronym AAA* (The Triple-A Membership that offers roadside assistance, maps, travel discounts, and much more) stand for?

It should be noted that this particular acronym holds upwards of 150 legitimate meanings, but I think you know the one I'm talking about.
