Question: A reader called Spike asked “Is YMCA a city?”

Answer: No, Spike. The letters YMCA are initials standing for Young Men’s Christian Association. It was founded as  an organization “to put Christian principles into practice” (source: Wikipedia) although it is best known to the general public for its gyms (health clubs).
