How well will you do? This list was copied from The Fairy King's link (posted 1/5/2005), only The Fairy King's link had the words filled in. I don't know if this is up-to-date. For instance, what about QOF or is it QOFLATB, or is it the underlisted LATB? - oops, I gave one away. The Fairy King also posted that he used acronyms only if there were three or more words in the title or unless it was an album. For instance Mother Love (ML) isn't listed because it only has two words. And what about ROTC, or should this list be only for Queen and not include Queen+? Rather than submitting your answers on this thread which could make each reply VERY LONG, and it would give away the answers to those who might want to work on it on their own, perhaps you could print the list out and fill it in. When you have done your best and done your most, reply with a number. No cheating though. Who will be the COTQAQ (Champion Of The Queen Acronym Quiz)?!

P.S. If The Fairy King would like to add anything to this list, I will do so by revising this list and putting an asterisk* by the addition. Perhaps there should be another list for Queen things that are not song titles or names of albums, such as QOL (Queen online website), or QP (Queen Productions), or what else?



Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

NJQueenFan obviously pasted from mine. He/she has put a capital E in the second Dead of All Dead, All Dead just like mine. I therefore demand that he/she is stripped of the COTQAQ title.

I think we need Scotland Yard here. My analysis:

The Fairy King's original post uses all uppercase throughout. It does not use any SPACE between the last spelled-out word in the title and the left parenthesis mark if there is a further definition in parenthesis, i.e., THE SPACE CAPSULE(THE LOVE THEME)

Linda of the Valley's post mimics The Fairy King's.

Munchsack uses lowercase for the spelled-out words, and there are two misspellings: IYCBT cant instead of can't, and MOTJ Moer instead of More. NJQueenFan spells can't and more correctly.

NJQueenFan uses lowercase for the spelled-out words but does not capitalize words such as : a / in / the / of / at / for / on / it / take. Munchsack uses a capital character pretty much for the beginning of each spelled out word.

I would say that Munchsack's and NJQueenFan's are not the same.

One of my New Year's resolutions was NOT TO THINK SO MUCH IN '06!

I would just like to clear up that I do know how to spell these words. When you have so many things to write it is virtually impossible to sort all of them.
