If I'm saying it out loud, Vegan With A Vengeance. If I'm writing something about the book I use VwaV.

I say Vee Wav in my head, but Vegan with a Vengeance when talking to other people. And I say P.C.O.S. (somehow pee-cos never occurred to me)

V-wam!

WoW = world of warcraft; MoP = mists of pandaria.

Anek, I'm interested in what acronyms sound like in Italian!

those of you who say pee-cos, is the c hard or soft? (pee-koce or pee-soce) if the latter, it's dangerously close to pee sauce.

What in the hell are you talking about? See, this is why I don't like acronym's. My brain just can't process!

Aha, see I also use a hard c sound, but a short o sound (more like "because"). I think that's probably more of an accent thing than anything, though.
