Just announce it already! Enough of this "xyz is going to announce abc tomorrow". If you're telling us what you're going to announce, guess what? You just announced it!

Announcements about upcoming announcements. Almost as bad as meetings about upcoming meetings. Both are things that make me glad I don't work in a corporate environment anymore!

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Ignored facts
still exist

That's why I can't listen to talk radio. Takes the host 15 minutes just to present one fact.

First they have to play it up, "you won't believe what I'm about to tell you." Then they announce it s-l-o-w-l-y, then they have to repeat it over and over and then they have to "sum it up" and tell you what it means.

Then they have some random caller tell us what they think about it.

A similar rant for me is when I answer the phone at our business and the caller says "I have a question for you." I immediately reply " I have an answer for you." That confuses some of them. Most calls to businesses are questions. Do you have? Can you? What time?


When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. The pain is only felt by others. The same thing happens when you're stupid.

"I have an answer. Maybe they'll match?"

A song from my youth...


Announcements, announcements, announcements!
What a terrible way to die,
A terrible way to die,
A terrible way to be talked to death.
A terrible way to die.

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
(London Bridge)
Make the announcements short and sweet,
Short and sweet,
Short and sweet.
Make the announcemnts short and sweet,
They're so BORING!

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
(Ever Seen a Windmill)
Have you ever seen a windbag,
A windbag, a windbag?
Have you ever seen a windbag?
Well, there's one right now.
Swings this way and that way,
And this way and that way,
Have you ever seen a windbag?
Well there's one RIGHT NOW!

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
(Freres Jaques)
Words of wisdom,
Words of wisdom.
Here they come,
Here they come.
Boring words of wisdom,
Boring words of wisdom.
Dum, dum, dum,
Dum, dum, dum.


Announcements, announcements, announcements!
(What Do You Do With A Drunken Sailor)
What do you do with a loud Cubmaster?
What do you do with a loud Cubmaster?
What do you do with a loud Cubmaster,
Early in the evening?

Hit him in the face with a chocolate cream pie!
Hit him in the face with a chocolate cream pie!
Hit him in the face with a chocolate cream pie,
Early in the evening!

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Throw the announcements overboard and listen to them scream.
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Ha Ha! Fooled you,
I'm a submarine.

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
The man stood up to talk.
He talked real long and hard.
He talked so long I wrote this song,
On the lid of a can of lard!
He's got something to say.
I'm sure it must be good.
But if he talks too long today,
we'll leave its understood.

Announcements, announcements, announcements!
We've got a silly cheer,
That you've just got to hear!
It makes no sense we're sure you know,
The announcements have to GO!




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

I've actually been summoned to a pre-meeting planning meeting to plan the meeting we had to have before the full meeting.

And of course, a two line email would have sufficed.




I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.
