My favorite internet acronym has to be STFU. See, any Space Ghost fan would initially parse that as 'Stuff you!' (c.f. Episode 66 - "Curses") Or, as my friends would often express it during math classes, S(U). Sure, I eventually found out that STFU expands to something completely different, but 'Stuff you!' usually still makes sense in context.

I parse it as "stuff you" or "stu-fu". I get the intention, just don't necessarily make sense.

It takes me a second to re-parse it correctly :P

Since I played on newbie tribes servers for quite some time, I'm very familiar with it and perfectly understand it.

I usually parse it as 'stu-fu' also. My new favorite internet acronym, though, is OMG because those three letters juxtaposed just do something for me. It deposed incumbent AFAIK.

I parse it as Shut teh face, you. But that's only because I have a slightly deranged friend who says "SHUT TEH FACE" constantly online.

I've never had the pleasure of parsing it as stuff you.
