Q:  Why did the chicken cross the road?

A:  A chicken may or may not cross the road if it perceives an impending doom. 


So many questions asked that go unanswered. 

But they are not greeted with unknowing silence or gentle gasps of confusion.

The questions are countered with trails of words, superficially woven together to compose an utterance.

But with no attachment to a resolution of reason.

Because we must say something...

....even when it is nothing. 
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

People often comment to me that I don't talk a lot.

That I'm quiet.

Yet, it never occurs to them...

....that maybe.....they're too loud.



Why must silence always be filled?

Why must words be elicited for the sake of it? 

It really is okay, if we have nothing to say, to say nothing. 

It isn't some mark of un-intelligence.



Indeed, it is a hallmark of wisdom.

To know when it is unnecessary to remark.

Because loud is good.  Loud is metal.  Loud is rock n roll.

Quiet is for monks.

This strikes at the very heart of business speak.

"In order to incentivize the ramping up process (leading to increased productivity), we need to do a solve regarding the 'Employer of CHoice' fundamental built into the synergistic foundation of core values."

And Federal government speak...

Which was what inspired this.

I sent a very simple and straightforward question to my federal funder.

"Can you give me a general time frame as to when I'll get a decision about my request?"

I received a 3 paragraph response that answered every question except for the one I actually asked.

The Frost Heaves need to do a business speak song.

Since two of them work in Pharmeceuticals, this could be one very dense song.

Buzzwords- making english meaningless so you can get away with saying something meaningless while still looking like youve accomplished something.
