Uncle Sam’s Motorcycle Club ("USMC” backronym)

"Uncle Sam’s Motorcycle Club” is a backronym (back acronym) of “USMC” (United States Marine Corps). “Uncle Sam’s Motorcycle Club” has been cited in print since at least September 1993.

Other backronyms of “USMC” include “Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children,” “Uncle Sam’s Mountain Climbers,” “University of Science, Music and Culture,” “Unlimited Shit and Mass Confusion,” “U Suckers Missed Christmas” and “U Signed the Motherfucking Contract.” Popular “Marine” backronyms include “Muscles Are Required, Intelligence Not Essential” and “My Ass Rides In Navy Equipment.”

Libya claimed a region of international waters, and threatend US ships exercising their right to navigation. Freedom of navigation is _always_ an excellent way to invite a visit by Uncle Sam’s Motorcycle Club.
