I was making a presentation at board level and was asked a question I hadn't prepared for - an unusual occurrence in my case. I had built up a reputation for being well prepared so had a lot of 'credibility capital'.
I gave an answer prefaced by ' Making a SWAG, I'd put the cost in the order of....'
The board approved the investment of course. After the meeting I was approached by 'my' director who asked rather sheepishly what this English acronym SWAG meant. I had to admit to a Seriously Wild Arsed Guess.
Anyone heard the story of BMW and CHAV lights?
Edit: I have long forgotten where I learned the term SWAG and claimed it for my own use - along with JFDI, which I'm sure you all know.
