What does the word ACME stand for?
Over the years we have heard numerous answers as to what the word and/or letters ACME stands for.
We are ruling out the Wil E. Coyote’s most used gadget company called ACME as from where it came.
The word ACME in the dictionary is as follows:
ac•me (āk’mē) n. The highest point, as of achievement or development: reached the acme of his career.
It was stated when it was created that it was the highest level or best baseball, and so be it that acme was the selected word.
