Is It Ever OK to Let the Expletives Fly? Even in Acronyms?

Swearing Business Cartoon
So I don’t really swear in my cartoons. Occasionally I’ll write in a well-chosen curse word that I LOVE, show it to my wife, argue with her about it, and then eventually agree with her assessment of “maybe not.”
But do acronyms count? I mean, we know what this means (right?), but since I didn’t technically write it, is it OK? Cartoons have used glyphs to signify foul language for almost a century, surely an acronym is fair game. Or is this so well-known now that it’s off limits.
I went ’round and ’round on this for a while in my own head, but eventually ended up showing it to my wife, and guess what, she’s totally OK with it.
Whew!
