Three Letter Acronym

ThreeLetterAcronym can be further contracted to TLA, which is self-referential, or meta-referential. Where are Achilles and the Turtle when you need them?

Where are Achilles and the Turtle when you need them?

Achilles had overtaken the Tortoise, and had seated himself comfortably on its back. 'So you've got to the end of our race-course?' said the Tortoise. 'Even though it does consist of an infinite series of distances? I thought some wiseacre or other had proved that the thing couldn't be done.'
