Don't Always Go Together

I think words are great. There are words that are rather fun, words that are Dilbert-esque in their business speak ("utilize", anyone?),  really pompous words, jargon....

But then you start putting words together, and phrases don't always have meaning, but it gets really fun.

An Oracle splash screen: Productivity with Choice

I have no idea what this means. Without choice, we just twiddle our thumbs? It definitely amuses me!

The InFocus projector startup screen: InFocus. See clearly.

This one is mostly fun because the projector is usually out of focus when it starts and displays this screen.

What are your favorite phrases that don't always go together?

  1. Corporate slogans are almost always meaningless, and it's worse for companies from non-English speaking areas. Like Hitachi's rebrand a few years ago... "Inspire the Next"? Okaaaaay.
