"Think outside the Box" ... Bingo!!!

This is a follow up to Wael's post "DON'T THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX".

There are like around 20 buzz phrases (e.g. "Think outside the box", "customer-focused", "results-driven", "leadership", "empowerment") that every incompetent manager LOVES to use, in both fluent & broken English, and can't say a sentence without them. To make these managers stop, I suggest using the Buzzword Bingo cards! Dilbert tells us how to use them:


Supposedly, the MIT students used one during Al Gore's lecture in 1996!!
A nice buzzword generator:

    Me and a friend use to play a similar game, each one gives the other three words they have to use in a meeting, the weirder and more irrelevant the better. Short sentences were tried too, to much hilarity I might add, "donkeys are shorter than horses" in a marketing meeting is probably my favourite to date :)

  3. Hi Nice Blog . AtBingo online games site is seen as socially acceptable even though it is technically gambling. From the point of view of many players it is not seen as gambling at all but rather as more of a social gathering online that just happens to have bingo as the catalyst for a common interest.
