The link below explains 50 of the commonest abbreviations used in texting and email messages, and those who posted above are just fitting amusing organ-related alternatives to them .  But I'm no expert so hopefully this post won't be deemed patronising by those who are.

(I think you have to be a teenager to be even in the running to be called expert on this sort of thing, though apparently they now consider what we are discussing here to be old hat.  Anyone with any street cred at all (i.e. definitely not me) will own a phone which auto-corrects and auto-inserts the correct phrase or abbreviation, depending on how you set it up.  Mine doesn't I hasten to add).

The list does contain quite a good one which does not need to be forced into an 'organ' situation:

PEBKAC - Problem exists between Keyboard and Chair

Not at all!  I've been using such abbreviations in electronic communication since the mid-80s (i.e. well before the Internet reached the public).  But then, I was using a computer at university in the 60s - these things are hardly new!
