Subject: The Buzzphrase Generator
From: "John M. Scheer" < >


A kindly gentleman, after a seminar in Canada, gave me this gem. We can
all use it to write impressive reports to the systems analysts and "E-Ring"
experts in the Pentagon.

It all started as a TIC (Tongue In Cheek) aid for preparing speeches and
briefings. The new invention, known as a buzzphrase generator, gives its
prime practitioners what amounts to instant expertise on matters pertaining
to defense.

The buzzphrase generator consists of three columns of buzz-words
numbered zero to nine.

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3

0. integrated 0. management 0. options
1. total 1. organizational 1. flexibility
2. systematized 2. monitored 2. capability
3. parallel 3. reciprocal 3. mobility
4. functional 4. digital 4. programming
5. responsive 5. logistical 5. concept
6. optimal 6. transitional 6. time-phase
7. synchronized 7. incremental 7. projection
8. compatible 8. third-generation 8. hardware
9. balanced 9. policy 9. contingency

The procedure is simple. Think of any three-digit number at random.
Then select the corresponding buzz-word from each column. Put them together
and PRESTO! You sound just like you know what you're talking about.


Barum-bum! <--Back
