Yankovic song parodies MegaCorpSpeak

Excellent! I'm pretty sure I've seen very similar illustrations during Senior Management presentations...

Brings back way too many memories of useless interminable staff meetings. They were all a complete waste of time.

Wow! Too many bad memories in that one. Good thing I didn't have a cup of coffee in my hand or I would be wearing it!

Just sent the link to 22-yo DS who is a megacorp engineer with visions of management in his head. Told him to beware! Thanks for sharing.
