Anyone remember the great bike name acronyms from back in the day?

Dave Yates made the D.O.N.K.I.S.N.O.B. which I seem to remember was Dave's Oversize No Kompromise Interactive System Never Obviously Bettered (or was it Beaten?)

Any other translations? I always used to this a Yeti FRO was a Fskin Rip Off until I bought one (the amount I ride these days, it's definitely For Racing Only!)

What about the CATS WISKAS? Any others, amusing or otherwise?

DOGS BOLX is the obvious one. No idea what it stood for though.

Does anyone remember taking stickers off your junk to make it say something else?

Specialized became "Special Ed"

This was my favorite: Trek USA became "I Rek U"

Ameybrook - my Specialized Air Force 1 (I think it was) had Special Ed after I cannibalised it. My real name's Ed, too
