With the advent of abbreviation in mainstream and computer vocabulary, there are a few companies that could benefit from rebranding or changing acronymed logos to avoid an abbreviated fail.

I doubt god is laughing, and STD Development which I think is an abbreviated fail that speaks for itself. Stats for Abbreviated Fail Branding Trending: Older & Mild
