A.R.T. As An Acronym

Nicollette Sheridan posing for Hestia bra advertisementWhile surfing the Internet for Wulf the Briton, I discovered that A.R.T. as an acronym means Assuming Room Temperature, a paramedic term for "the casualty has snuffed it"! On the same website I found that a "backronym" is the addition of words to create an acronym from what is properly a word. The "backronym" for the Aussie bra manufacturer Hestia is Holds Every Size Tit In Australia. One assumes that before mounting its advertising campaign with the slogan Support For Women At Work, Hestia - named after the Ancient Greek goddess of hearth and home - consulted that expert on political correctness and sheila-sensitivity Sir Les Patterson.
