It's All in the Name (Part II)

Quick! What does B.M.W. stand for?

Those of you who answered Bayerische Motoren Werke, wrong, and you actually may be in for a nasty surprise if you own one without owning a private parking space.

We learn today that B.M.W. stands for Bewegung für Militante Widerstand (Movement for Militant Resistance in German), and apparently they have identified a creative way for achieving sole ownership of the brand name.

I guess they could not sue them in a trademark court so this is the next best thing.
