Recently I came across this site that claims to have the longest collection of acronyms ever.
After scanning the site, I realized I only knew a handful out of the 1000+ list of acronyms. But, I do have our own acronyms (or should I say language) here at Current down pat:

MEEPS – Media Peeps
A shortened form of Media and Peeps. They even have a junior MEEP named Rosie Miller.
TUDE – Attitude

PADOOF or DOOF – PDF , Postscript Data File
