Not Thought Through

Someone in the government did not think through the full implications of the new country’s name.  Currently the government is referred to as GOSS, or Government of Southern Sudan.

The new country’s official name, as of Saturday, will be the Republic of South Sudan (ROSS).

However, that leaves the government’s new acronym as a slightly unfortunate coincidence…

G.R.O.S.S.

Oops.
