I heard part of a similar complaint on BBC World Service this morning. The broadcasted example was a thirty-nine word jargon-ridden answer provided by the Starbucks coffee company's CEO to the question: "Will you buy any more companies this year?" The real answer was: "No."
In my business dealings, the catch-phrases abound. I am reminded of the joke told by Naval aviators: "An airplane crash is "officially" defined as a semi-controlled descent into local indigenous terrain."
