Thanks to Kate for passing along this gem

Do you keep falling asleep in meetings & seminars? What about those
long & boring conference calls? Here's a way to change all that:

1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or conference call,
prepare for the meeting by drawing a square -- 5"X5" is a good size.

2. Divide the square into columns -- five across and five down. That
will give you 25 one-inch blocks.

3. In each block, write one of the following words/phrases:

synergy
strategic fit
core competencies
best practice
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(ment)
knowledge base
at the end of the day
touch base
mindset
client focus(ed)
ballpark
game plan
leverage

4. Whenever you hear any one of those words/phrases, check off the
appropriate block.

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

Testimonials from satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:

third time in two hours." -- Kathleen L., Atlanta
