"Let's go Brandon!" is getting quite stale, as far as I'm concerned. The novelty has worn off. I prefer them to say the real thing out loud, "Fuck Joe Biden!"

Every time I hear that, it's a euphemism for an ass chewing.

"We Stand in Solidarity with... (who the heck ever)"

Noun: Solidarity, unity of agreement or action. Mutual support.

So you may be in solidarity with, or have a feeling of solidarity, or wish for solidarity, but how do you stand in it?

It's too much. It's a perfectly good word all by its lonesome but your word salad needs dressing so you 'stand' in it.

Could you grovel in solidarity, fart-around in solidarity, hop-scotch in solidarity?

I suppose it's supposed to sound tough-guy-ish but it sounds moronic.

The phrase "if you will" seems to be added as a tag line at the end of a sentence with increasing frequency. Don't know why people do it.

Absolutely. I used to play corporate-speak bingo with some colleagues. "Synergy" was always a popular word that got a lot of wins. Smile

Abundance of caution, equity, diversity, the list could go on and on, but then I'd have to circle back.


I had my patience tested... I'm negative.
