Meetings, for all their faults, provide a great opportunity to play bullshit bingo.  This pastime has saved my sanity on a number of occasions.  Examples include: synergy, touch base, paradigm and take that offline. The latest ORICA GreenEDGE press release on Matt White’s reappointment is a WONDERFUL opportunity to play this game.  See the original release here.  It’s a veritable gold mine for devotees of the sport.

I’m unsure if the release is actually some sort of joke, but I’ve deleted a few words out of the original release to reveal all of the platitudes, useless motherhood statements and empty phrases it contains.  I didn’t have to delete much.  Enjoy!
