George Mason University honored Antonin Scalia by renaming its law school after the late Supreme Court justice.
But that gesture became more of a joke after the wonderful world of social media realized the acronym for the school's new name was a little, well, unflattering.
GMU first announced it would change its law school's name to the Antonin Scalia School of Law on March 31, after it received a $30 million donation from the Charles Koch Foundation and an anonymous donor.
