Business Speak

I don’t know about you, but it’s grown tiring.

Take, for example, this admittedly edited interview with the new CEO of Wendy’s. It starts out innocently enough, but soon you’re getting metaphor after tired metaphor.

Pixie dust. Looking out the windshield, not the rear view mirror. Zig when others zag.

It’s far from plain-spoken, which is really too bad. But at latest it’s not totally obfuscated like some corporate speak.

I say something witty, but I’m busy aligning my corporate objectives with the strategic plan to ensure that that the organization structure is a new paradigm.

Ah, lighten up, Paul. You just need to think outside the box.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
