Must be a loaded question? :-)

"Welcome to the GNU Project web server. The GNU Project was launched in 1984
to develop a complete UNIX like operating system which is free software: the
GNU system, (GNU is a recursive acronym for ³GNU's Not UNIX²; it is
pronounced ³guh-noo,² ³noo² being like the American ³new²)."
