Bureaucratic gobbledegook


For some time the misuse of language has fascinated/annoyed me, (he says) as has the meaningless pomposity of so much of what issues from administrators. Lately I have worked up a composite of such phrases, and today I can offer this, below:

It is not rocket science to be able to see, with 20:20 hindsight, that the elephant in the room was caught between a rock and a hard place. It had been moving forward to a new conceptual paradigm when the sky fell in.

Was its holistic strategy innovative at this moment in time? Absolutely! The elephant was jump-starting an integrated quantum appreciation that would reach out to leverage an impactful resolution of the human resources conundrum which had gone missing. This could have been very uniquely game-changing. Unfortunately, its environmental metrics were not optimised to 110 percent scalability solutions. This challenged its platform's 360 degree sustainability, resulting in negative bandwidth at the end of the day.

As it is the 'silly season', (he concludes) I offer this as an opening challenge for your blog pages. Invite other authors to submit their own compilations of hated and despised gobbledygook, and have some fun. 

So there you have it.  Any bureaucratic double-speak that has annoyed you lately?  Or you might have fun making up your own!  Let's hear the result!
