Be it known to the world that on this day, I, along with my colleagues in the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), begin a test. Because we are all fed up with silly buzzwords, we have decided to introduce our own meaningless phrase into the corporate buzzword conversation. The new buzzword is “Pogo Stick.”
Used in a sentence: “We need to Pogo Stick this idea. We need to bounce it around all of the departments and see what people think.”
If you are of the twisted mindset to join us, please follow these instructions:
1) Use Pogo Stick at your next meeting.
2) Use Pogo Stick at as many meetings as possible.
3) Include Pogo Stick in e-mail conversations.
4) Report back to us when you hear someone else using this foolish phrase.
To see all of the buzzwords used at once, watch The World’s Worst Speech on YouTube.
