Assistance from the snarkier members of Bullshido
So a friend of mine posted about Corporate Bullshit Bingo... It goes like this:
Corporate Bullshit Bingo
Do you keep falling asleep in meetings and seminars? What about those long and boring conferences? Here's a way to change all of that.
1. Before (or during) your next meeting, seminar, or conference, prepare yourself by drawing a square. I find that 5"x 5" is a good size.
Divide the card into columns-five across and five down. That will give you 25 one-inch blocks.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
* strategic fit
* core competencies
* best practice
* bottom line
* take that off-line
* out of the loop
* think outside the box
* fast track
* empower (or empowerment)
* knowledge base
* at the end of the day
* touch base
* client focus(ed)
* game plan
3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"
Testimonials from satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:
* "I had been in the meeting for only five minutes when I won."- Jack W.
* "My attention span at meetings has improved dramatically."- David D.
* "The atmosphere was tense in the last process meeting as 14 of us waited for the fifth box." - Ben G.
* "The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed 'BULLSHIT!' for the third time in two hours."- Kathleen L
So it got me wondering... What would comprise a "Bullshido" Martial Arts Bingo list? What would we be looking for if we went to a seminar, or a new school, or a guest teacher came in to teach something?
I figured since you guys are way more funny and snarky than I could ever be, I open the floor to you.

The bottom line is this is an excellent idea!
The new game plan is to think outside the box and change the paradigm. We can leverage some synergies from the resulting benchmarks for a strategic fit. At the end of the day, by maintaining a client focus, the value added to our best practices could be a "win win" with a result driven knowledge base.
Our mindset should be proactive. Lets get to work on this 24/7. I want everyone empowered and not left out of the loop. We should fast track this and use each of our core competencies to revisit this offline. We'll touch base tomorrow.Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

From an actual seminar:
"Did you see that? I just hit him 12 times in 7 seconds." .... turns to uke (who wasnt even hit) and holds the uke's shoulder saying "Are you ok?"
That one was a bingo right there."Sifu, I"m niether - I'm a fire dragon so don't **** with me!"
