Someone sent this to me via email the other day. I cleaned it up for the purposes of posting here.
We could substitute other euphemisms that are used in the media for the corporate buzzwords here, and play the same game!
Bravo Sierra Bingo - How to stay awake at meetings
1. Before or during your next meeting, seminar, personnel and budget committee, or conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square 5" x 5" on a piece of paper. Divide the square into columns, five across and five down. That should give you 25 one-inch blocks of space.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each space:
at the end of the day
out of the loop
think outside the box
give it your best shot
3. Check off the appropriate box when you hear one of the above words/phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout: "Bravo Sierra!"
That sums up a lot of things quite nicely, doesn't it.
