If I ever find the consultant who first coined that phrase, I'll rip his lungs out put the video up on YouTube!
There’s no "I" in team and there's no "aye"either. That must mean sailors, who say "aye" a lot, are not team players! Wow, that makes a lot of sense.
You can also rearrange the letters in team to spell "meat." Does that mean vegetarians are not collaborative? Hey, maybe that’s why my team-building exercise Pass-the-Meatball ™ was such a flop during that brainstorming session with the folks at PETA.
Anyway, let's see what happens when we extend the logic of extracting meaning from the letters present in a word. An examination of the letters in the word consultant yields the following brilliant insights:
- There’s a little bit of a “con” in every consultant.
- You can’t spell consultant without using the letters in the words “slut” or “lust.”
If you buy that crap, you're going to love these additional and little known Lincoln-Kennedy coincidences:
- Lincoln was raised in a log cabin. A young John Kennedy once spilled Log Cabin syrup in the back of his dad’s Lincoln Continental.
- After getting elected, Lincoln went to work and freed the slaves. Kennedy often went to work in frayed sleeves.
