1)Blamestorming - A group process where participants analyze a failed project and look for scapegoats other than themselves.

2)Death by Tweakage - When a product or project fails due to unnecessary tinkering or too many last-minute revisions.

3)BMWs - Bitchers, moaners and whiners.

4)Clockroaches - Employees who spend most of their day watching the clock - instead of doing their jobs.

5)Plutoed - To be unceremoniously dumped or relegated to a lower position without an adequate reason or explanation.

6)Prairie Dogging - A modern office phenomenon. Occurs when workers simultaneously pop their heads up out of their cubicles to see what's going on.

7)Carbon-based Error - Error caused by a human, not a computer (which we assume would be a silicon-based error).

8)Menoporsche - Male menopause. Symptoms include a sudden lack of energy, crankiness and the overpowering urge to buy a Porsche.

10)Deja Poo - The feeling that you've heard this bull before.

11)Bobbleheading - The mass nod of agreement by participants in a meeting to comments made by the boss even though most have no idea what he/she just said.
