I thought DPO stood for Dip$hit Previous Owner.  Maybe Oily actually revised his original post updating the list after the subsequent "missing" acronyms.


I'll add one or two;  FLAPS-Friendly Local Auto Parts Store(Salesperson)

Geez, I don't even have a cell phone to text with.....

Gang,

It looks like the list is missing BFH -- Big F'n Hammer.

Also, I see the term FUBAR all the time but have no clue what it means... I can guess the first two letters, but need help with the last three.

A variation on FUBAR is "f***ed up beyond all repair".  This version was relayed to me by Navy chief petty officer.
