A Tool To Help You (or them) Talk Less Like One
We all have verbal tics, words our mouth fills in while we're talking but our brain's off processing something else. The trick is that we're rarely conscious of them. The manufacturer of Buzzword has worked out a way to change that. They've made a wristband that has a microphone which allows you to train it to recognize when you use certain crutch words in your speech, such as "like" or "you know." After training it, you slide it on your wrist and it gives you a reminder when it hears you use that word -- a small shock. Soon your subconscious is associating those words with an unpleasant sensation, and before you know it, you sound more polished and professional.
Of course, the monkeys here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ had to take it up a notch. If it can recognize your verbal tics, it can also recognize annoying corporate buzzwords, like "low-hanging fruit," "bleeding edge," and "synergies." Program it to recognize the worst offenders, or better yet, give this lovely wristband to your favorite corporate executives as a gift and watch them twitch during the next All-Hands Meeting. We promise not to tell. But we can't promise we won't laugh.
Warning: The product emits an electric shock. Keep out of reach of children. May interfere with electrical devices such as pacemakers or tricorders.
