DBIED

From The Taliban Shuffle (2010) by Kim Barker, in relation to her first “embedded” engagement with American troops in Afghanistan:

I would learn that everything in the military had an acronym. The IED was an improvised explosive device, or roadside bomb. The BBIED was a body-borne improved explosive device, otherwise known as a suicide bomber. And the DBIED was a donkey-borne improvised explosive device, otherwise known as a really stupid idea.
