Sorry that my attempt at humor has proven to be too subtle.  I was
referring to the following fact:

The International Telecommunication Union wanted Coordinated Universal
Time to have the same symbol in all languages. English and French
speakers wanted the initials of both their respective language's terms
to be used internationally: "CUT" for "coordinated universal time" and
"TUC" for "temps universel coordonné". This resulted in the final
compromise of "UTC".
