Needs Some Insecticide

a: Jargon ~
b: insect infestation

What: "Corporate jargon is like insect infestation. It gets into everything. Suddenly your verbs are being made into nouns, your nouns into verbs, words are mashed together and then clipped before the suffix, new words are created from old ones, half-metaphores are mating with other half-metaphores, and the net net is EMPLOYEES DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK EXECUTIVES ARE SAYING. But we're supposed to, and that's the frustrating thing."
