There was quite a good, if not PC(not even close), one for the resistor colour code. Probably best to leave that to one side.

From school days:
SWALK - Sealed With A Loving Kiss (****, just realised; that was when people used to write letters to each other!).

NORWICH - Nickers Off Ready When I Come Home (****, just realised; that was when people used to write letters to each other).

OMO - Old Man Out: just been informed by 'er indoors that 'oop north' a packet of OMO washing powder left on the windowsill indicated that the male of the establishment was absent and a young chap could pop round and play.
No idea what she means.

POSH - Port out, Starboard Home.

Before 1964 they said Pontiac stood for:
Poor Old N-word Thought It was A Cadillac.
Now that Pontiac is no longer around,
I guess it doesn't matter anymore.
