Smart or Smart Aleck?

For as long as I can remember, Cody has been infatuated with abbreviations. I've listed examples of some he is familiar with.

NBA
ARFF
FAA
FBO
FBI
CIA
CSI
CPR
SCUBA
AFV
AARP
NFL
AT
NT
ATM
CLR
SSI
AC
TNT
BSA
DMV
CD
CDL
FFA
ABC

I am certain Cody knows countless others, nevertheless I was surprised this evening when Don asked Cody to help him do something and his reply was...

"DIY dad!"

I had no idea he knew that one!

Smart Aleck [al-ik]-
-noun
1. a wise guy
2. an obnoxiously conceited person


Just for fun, how many of these do YOU know?
