30. "Thinking outside the box."
What box?! Where is this mythic box of which you speak? I hate corporate speech...

other ones:

"I'm just blue skying."
"Don't carrot-and-stick me!"
"We're going to green-light your project."
"It's do-able."


Whenever I hear these expressions, I want to strangle the next asshole wearing a suit and tie I see walking down the street....
