SMS, Your useful words post caused me to dig this one out of my private archives.

How to play "Bullshit Bingo"

Before your next meeting, seminar, or conference call, prepare your Bullshit Bingo Cards by drawing a square (5"x5" is a good size) and divide it into columns and rows {five across and five down). That will give you (25) 1" blocks.

Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:

synergy
strategic fit
core competencies
out of the box
bottom line
revisit
take that off-line
24/7
out of the loop
benchmark
value-added
proactive
win-win
think outside the box
fast track
result-driven
empower (or empowerment)
knowledge base
at the end of the day
touch base
mindset
client focus(ed)
ballpark
game plan
leverage

Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"

Testimonials from satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:

"I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won."
-Jack W., Boston

"My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically."
-David D., Florida

"What a gas! Meetings have never been the same since my first win."
-Bill R., New York City

"The atmosphere was tense in the last process meeting as 14 of us waited for the fifth box." -Ben G., Denver

"The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed "BULLSHIT!" for the third time in two hours." Kathleen L., Atlanta

The Fine Print

The inventors, manufacturers, advertisers, and retailers(and families thereof) of "BULLSHIT" accept no responsibility for loss of employment or "downtime" due to playing of "the game"!! PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!

SE,

I actually used that once about 3 years ago with my former boss here in Singapore (maybe that one reason I'm no longer there?!?). Gay local chinese bosses have a rather low threshhold of abuse or sense of fun.
