A while back, a coworker of mine who had been stationed in Guam while in the Air Force told me a surprising fact — the name of the island Guam is not, as one would expect, a Chamorro word. (Chamorro is an indigenous language of Guam.) Rather, it turns out, that it’s an acronym, for “Give Us American Money.”
OK, I’m sure that’s unfair in all sorts of ways, but I couldn’t help myself. By the way, did you know that Iacocca isn’t Lee Iacocca’s real name? It actually stands for “I Am Chairman Of the Chrysler Corporation of America.” True fact!
