Diego Medina created 11 backronyms in one minute. His friend Ryan
Brown created a list of three and four-letter acronyms in advance of
the attempt. Medina didn’t the see the acronyms until the record began.
In the midst of the attempt, Medina’s backronym for “POE” was disallowed
because he made “O” stand for “oof,” which is not an actual word.
The record was set at a St. Patrick’s-themed World Record Appreciation
Society event held at Joe’s Pub in New York City. Dan Rollman and
Corey Henderson were present as witnesses.
