Code R.A.I.N.B.O.W

In hindsight, General Grevenshen realized that it had been a bad idea.

There were a great many things he could have titled his great plan for world domination. Things like…General Grevenshen’s Generalized Take Over The World And Dominate It Plan.

Or, Kill All The World Leaders And Take Over The Whooooolle World Plan.

There were many others. All of them equally wordy. One was an entire paragraph long.

Finally, his lead henchman, Super Duper Giraffe Boss, recommended Code R.A.I.N.B.O.W.

“What do the letters stand for?”

“Huh? They have to stand for something?” Super Duper Giraffe Boss scratched his thatch of red-orange hair. “I thought it sounded cool.”

General Grevenshen was all set to argue for acronyms having some sort of meaning, but then he thought about it.

Code R.A.I.N.B.O.W. “Yes. Yes, I like it. We’ll go with that!” He raised his fingers in a victorious V. “The world will bow to me and my amazing world domination plan! aaaaaahhhh-HAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAA!”

Fast forward, three months later….

Super Duper Giraffe Boss entered the room with another full bag of hate mail. “Sorry, boss.”

General Grevenshen dug his fingers into his hair and pulled it repeatedly. “iiiihhh! How was I supposed to know that everyone would take offense to my brilliant plan’s name?”

Super Duper Giraffe Boss opened a random letter. “oh. This one’s accusing you of queer baiting and hate crimes all at the same time. Huh. They’re also saying that you are a hater of humanity and all things good and beautiful.”

General Grevenshen stopped abusing his hair. “It’s okay. I got this. We’ll just come up with a better plan with a much better name. aaaaah-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!”

    1. I had a lot of fun with this one. I almost tried to have the RAINBOW acronym stand for something, but I thought it would be a lot more unexpected if it didn’t stand for anything at all.
