BMW Acronym - What have you heard?

OK

We have all know what the initials BMW stands for, but what have you heard your friends tell you it stands for?

So far, I've heard;

"Bring More Washington$"

"Bavarian Manure Wagon"

"Break My Window"

And the most surprising to date from an African co-worker who says this is what they call them in Africa;

"Beat My Wife"

No kidding . . . .

Regards,
