"TNA" for "T and A"

From a discussion on the Rotten Tomatoes website about the upcoming movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”, which will reportedly be rather sexually explicit:

There’s something about actresses clamoring to play a shallow pointless TNA role while Actors have a “HELL NO I AINT DOING THAT” mentality about the whole thing that I find Intriguing. Is it because women can’t get any better roles maybe and Males have the luxery of turning down the TNA roles?

I can only imagine what the writer thinks TNA stands for.

Re: "TNA" for "T and A"

Good one. I might add a link to the letterate eggcorns. Here’s a return volley.

fanfic: Two-Face strings up 200 sticks of T-and-T to a rope and gives Batman two minutes to reveal himself.

Edit: that reminds me – see also D and A, and SNH.
