The etymology given is "Acronym of A Company that Makes Everything.". Can we provide some evidence of this? Also, if there is evidence, is that the source of just the Looney Toons incarnation or of the term as a generic company name in general. This is a term with a lot of folk-etymology baggage. - [The]DaveRoss 10:31, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Etymology removed, sense broadened, tags removed. Re-nominate here or on RFC if problems remain. - -sche (discuss) 03:34, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

I imagine a general sense (which we do not have at the moment) meets CFI, but the sense currently in the entry needs to meet BRAND and/or FICTION. - -sche (discuss) 06:20, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

The general sense might also belong at Acme. 109.155.174.230 18:48, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
