BBB, you're the cat's pajamas. I can tell you're a dame who likes to color outside the lines.

CB leads, others follow The most annoying office jargon: 1. Thinking outside the box 2. Let's touch base 3. Blue sky thinking 4. Blamestorming 5. Drill down to a more granular level 6. Let's not throw pies in the dark 7. I've got that on my radar 8. Push the envelope 9. Bring your A-game 10. Get all your ducks in a row

When I read your article, I couldn't remember any examples of legalese, and there were many, from the time I worked for the Social Security Administration. However, The email message below that I received on Monday from the company who does online tax returns for the IRS shows the Federal government still prefers legalese. The IRS has rejected your federal return. This means that your return has not been filed.         Here's the reason for the rejection: Error Code 0103: Form 1040/1040A/1040EZ - Total Federal Income Tax withholding shown on tax form must equal the sum of withholding on Other 1099 and AK Dividend, withholding from Schedule K-1, withholding on Form W-2, and W-2GU withholding on any Form 1099-R and withholding on Form W-2G. Exception: Do not reject when withholdings on the tax form exceed withholdings statements by $5.00 or less. identified as a Stimulus Payment return (special processing literal "ESP" in Form 1040A).

By the way, I have an absolutely wonderful DVD-ROM titled "Absolutely MAD". It contains every issue of MAD Magazine from 1952 through 2005. Other favorite MAD artists of mine include the legendary Wally Wood, Dave Berg ("The Lighter Side of ... "), Al Jaffee (famous for the MAD fold-in covers), and Sergio Aragonés, who drew all the little cartoons in the margins. Ah, culture! Santa Claus aside, I agree with everything you've said --- personally I think this is your best column in months. I've often argued that the two deadliest enemies to good writing are euphemism on the one hand and hyperbole on the other.
