comment Does pronouncing an initialism make it an acronym?
@nohat that makes it an initialism, not an acronym. You are just pronouncing the letters not the sound together; if you pronounced it Beebcuh...or some such, then it would be.

comment A word that encompasses buying and selling?
Does that cover selling/buying with money? It feels more like it is more suited to swapping one item for another.

Now I think about it, 'Pull your socks up' would be a good phrase as well.
