New dnf acronyms for amusing purposes

There are lots of acronyms for success on routes (OS, GU,  RP, F, FA etc) but few that represent the manner in which you failed at a route. So here's some I've come up with with the aim of making logbook comments more entertaining;

POFO: Pulled On, Fell Off

ALGOT: Accidently Let Go of Top,

BART: Bmc Accident Report Time,

LARA: Looked At, Ran Away.

Any more would be welcome.

I've said that one a few times while on the route, but to be pedantic it's not used for a failed ascent. In those situations, failure would result in being unable to log the route at all.

I can't help thinking that some of these "acronyms" don't roll off the tongue terribly easily!

I suppose that could also be:

But my first suggestion is more likely in my logbook.  Think I've written something to that effect on a few of my dnfs, adopting the acronym might save me some time in future.
