GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

@wakest @codesections We can recurse infinitely and it still would only approach the full proper name! ^^

I remember the first recursive acronym I ever learned as a kid: The TTP Project (which was a purposely pointless project depicted in Dilbert in the 80s/90s).
