Facilitate my meanings.
Red herrings can still bounce when dead
apparently, this technical tosser reckons.
Beta bollocks and cyber crap.

Network my thoughts.
Stagnant and exploding in this stale sandwich,
ducks in a row with i-words and e-conversations.
Java juveniles in empty suits.

Truncate my understanding.
The action plan is to multi-slack
and zero-task through these agenda items.
Duck shufflers, prioritising pricks.

Blog me till I burp.
Please reform your communication pathways
and integrate speech strategies
in line with the policy and procedure of...

Speaking Fucking English.

Clever. Liked the structure. Appreciated the sentiment. Of course, we'll never win ...

Small points: so you mean -
(1) recons or reckons?
(2) multi-slack or multi-stack?

Thanks Steve, apreciated.

1. Yes you're right (dunno how i passed english)
2. Multi-slack is correct - management jargon for doing lots of non-job related things.

Was toying with calling this jargon?

Hi Stephen,

As someone who has equal disdain for techno-jargonites,
I liked this.

I would think of replacing the word "Hate" out line 1. To vitriolic, could use something more ironic.
I don't know, maybe just "Facilitate this"

Also maybe drop "Fools"... it is so blatantly clear that you think they are fools...no need to say it.

Good stuff.

I work with software writers - and they actually speak English. It's the fucking muddle management that use those TLAs.


TLA = two/three letter acronyms


Know any FLAs or XLAs?

Thanks Mike & Brian,

I am a 'techie' and this is very much aimed at middle-management.
