Agglutinative Train Wreck

While looking up some other Japanese words, I ran across this one:

ABC順に 【エービーシーじゅんに】 (adv) in alphabetical order; ED

ABC is obviously an example of the meaning of the word, 順 means order, and に is the locative particle (in this case having the meaning of "in"). I thought it was hilarious that there's a Japanese word that contains Chinese kanji, Japanese hiragana, and Roman characters all together.
