Bulls**t Bingo
Do you keep falling asleep in staff meetings?
What about those long and boring conference calls?
Here's a way to change all of that:

1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or conference call,
prepare your "Bullshit Bingo" card by drawing a square -- I find that
5" x 5" is a good size -- and dividing it into columns --five across and
five down. That will give you 25 1-inch blocks.

2. 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*
*cascade
*sequential or sequentially

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

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

  "Thanks Bingo creator for thinking outside the box and proactively
creating
   this valueadded knowledgebase that is a strategic fit with my core
   competencies and current client focussed mindset. I can leverage our
   existing process and exploit the inherent synergies to expand the
   knowledgebase to cater to our result driven folks who will work 24/7 to

   it on a fasttrack. This cascading gameplan is what I call a truly win-win
   situation."
