    I'm bringing the sexy back.

    My boss likes to say everything is "from a _______ perspective". From a budget perspective, from a production perspective, from an HR perspective...

    While I fully grok our co-dependency, at the end of the day, the findings readily ameliorate the sum total of the vastness of Bovine Recyclables that cohabit and have ingress into our shared and valued vernacular.

    Focus groups and dr. phil have really brought home the synergies of common phraseology. The resultant realization, precognition even, that our language has fast food values for words that we change like tangas (except emu who goes commando) we are left with a teleology that is more seinfeld episode than koan.

    I'm not so sure. It is what it is.

    (Anyone else getting tired of that one?)

    Being in public education, we get new buzzwords on a yearly basis. Unfortunately everything we do is often changed based on those buzzwords, because people seem to think that the new words actually mean we are doing something differen, as opposed to "same stuff, different day.

    One that hit last year, which I started to hear in other contexts before it quickly seemed to disappear was "unpack".

    We "unpacked" our standards. Or someone would say something and follow it with, "let me unpack that." :rolleyes:

    it is what it is: i once broke up with a girl for insisting on saying this every time she was mad at me. that, and a healthy dosage of "whatev" was just entirely too much for me

    How about the 'main street' thing? I was waiting for the view from the 'burbs, or how about from the getto? Don't they matter too?

    And the next guy that 'says 'at the end of the day' will get cyber puke all over iPhone.

    Is there an app for that?

    Bleah. I'd rather adapt *to* it. In other words, work around it / avoid it as much as possible. Whatever buzzword paradigm 'they' are using, and the wacky / insufferable time waster activities that accompany it, will be supplanted with some new buzzword, with an entirely new set of wacky / insufferable time wasting activities ... and it will all happen sooner than later.

    The buzzwords that make verbs of what were formerly nouns, are the ones that drive me batty.

    While researching for some, I found the following... Forbes' Jargon Madness tourney 2013. Scroll down some to see the brackets and buzzwords. The fun comes by mousing over the confounding terms: there you see the non-BS definitions, which are indeed illuminating.

    Paridigm... pair of dimes ... house of cards ... :D

    I, too, am totally Batmanned by verbing.

    That is amazing and I wish I had thought up that tournament! I used to collect business jargon and mission statements while leafing through Annual Reports (usually the easiest places to find jargon.) Some of the mission statements were 3-sentence paragraphs, and by the time I got to the end I still had no idea what the company did. Stock photos of skyscrapers, or 2 people smiling and shaking hands, or someone with a headset at a desk. Still no idea what they do!

    Every time I hear the word "robust" I want a cup of coffee.
