What does ISO mean?

Could somebody tell me what ISO stands for?
What I found on Google "International Standard Organization" seems to be out of place with what's going on here.

In addition to International Standards Organization, ISO stands for In Search Of. Use this in a thread title when you're looking for a recipe. Someone will respond with a TnT recipe. (Tried and true).
