What does POI stand for? Googling it led me to a thread on the gradcafe forum which has some nice options:
Primary Opium Introducer
Pithy Orangutan Instigator
Perching Orange Intimidator
Person Oppressing Imagination
Pathological Optimism Incinerator
By some of the posts here, especially in this thread, the last seems pretty likely. Okay, so seriously I guess some people use it for Person of Interest, but that just has a huge criminal vibe to it. The other possibility is Professor of Interest, which sounds pretty weird in itself.
So, which one is it?
It stands for person of importance lol, but I admit yours are more interesting.
