I must have missed the answer for VHS Seth.

Quick Response Force.
Sorry, Pink. I forgot to check this thread. Guess what?

You win!!!!

Technically, a QRF is a Quick Reaction Force, but Quick Response Force is so close that I am declaring you the winner.

Now, about the bonus question ...

Humvee comes from the military initials given to their name for this vehicle. It is a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). Apparently, it became the norm to drop the sound of the W and just refer to it as a Humvee.

This is a question that is easy for people from the Antipodes.

Ah... I didn't ask what does this acronym stand for. My reference was to previous posts. Sorry for the trickiness... :drinks
I thought the reference to the Antipodes would widen the view..

Aussie's turn.
Okay. I'll defer until I think of one which will give you the shits, Pinky! In the meantime, why do Kiwis refer to amusing people as 'dags?'

A kiwi was driving an Aussie around the country in NZ. The kiwi spots a sheep with its head stuck in the fence. He slams on the brakes and after a quick word to the Aussie he runs over the road, drops his daks and gives the sheep a good rogering.

Coming back to the car while fastening his belt he says to the Aussie “Oh, I am sorry, would you like a go?”

So the Aussie runs across the road
And sticks his head in the fence.

It is affectionate....after all everybody has to, and being sheepcentric in NZ.. well bit like Aussies calling you a shithead.

Dag is also associated with the great Fred Dag,
a persona played by a beloved and renowned Antipodean, who was known, laughed with at the self-deprecating but surprisingly humorous and wise monologues..and for his roles.

What was his name again.?
