Shoot me if I use these any of these 10 words

Seriously. Should I willingly utter any of these words, realize that this is not me, that I have in all likelihood been abducted and brainwashed or inhabited by an alien or otherwise malevolent spirit. Please release me from whatever has forced me to use any of these words in my business or everyday conversations. In no particular order:

  • turnkey
  • leverage
  • scalable
  • rubicon
  • rubric
  • paradigm (shift)
  • idealogical
  • parenthetically
  • vituperate
  • synergy

I should note that David Meerman Scott has a delightful Gobbledygook Manifesto that he published in 2007 and is well worth reading.
