69 Words GM Employees Shouldn't Say
Geege Schuman stashed this in Auto Erotica
To make sure there are no misunderstandings, the presentation includes a list of 69 dirty words and phrases that should be avoided by employees in their writing. (Is the number itself an inside joke? Who knows?) The list includes terms both innocuous and potentially incriminating, like:
- Cobain [ed. note: WTF?]
- potentially-disfiguring [sic]
- rolling sarcophagus (tomb or coffin)
- you’re toast
As one of our colleagues pointed out, whoever whipped up that list of dirty words unintentionally created an outstanding new Facebook quiz: "GM recall words or death-metal band name?" Cataclysmic Cobain could go either way.
