[Ads-l] Pluralizing acronyms

I’m assuming you have heard the word “MILF” by now.

It’s pronounced and used as a word, like many acronyms. I’m just curious, if there is more than one mother you, um, desire, would MILF be pluralized like the words shelf, self and elf, with VES replacing the F at the end? One MILF, two MILVES...

Just a nonsense question, but one of the gazillion things I ponder when otherwise idle.
