    The larger social point is that the public is very savvy to b.s. no matter what the source. We are all familiar with “breaking news” that is anything but.

    The social and branding commentary is that you have to speak simply but assume a high level of audience sophistication re: corporate talk.

    Also people tend to read the subtext, not focus on the surface words – similar to when you talk, people pay attention to your tone, body language, nonverbal communication – not the words.

    OK now for the fun part:

    #1 – Nonsense News

    (This is from The Onion, and also on Funny or Die – warning: some profanity)

    I keep watching nonsense news because sometimes you come across gold. Remember this?

    #2 – Pointless Songs

    Some of my favorite songs make absolutely no sense either.

    The Reflex by Duran Duran comes to mind.

    What is your favorite nonsense? When you get back from the Father’s Day barbeque, please share!

    In case you were wondering: Here are the actual lyrics to “The Reflex,” courtesy of Lyrics Freak

    “You’ve gone too far this time”

    But I’m dancing on the valentine

    I tell you somebody’s fooling around

    With my chances on the dangerline

    I’ll cross that bridge when I find it

    Another day to make my stand

    High time is no time for deciding

    If I should find a helping hand

    CHORUS

    So why don’t you use it?

    Try not to bruise it

    Buy time don’t lose it

    The reflex is an only child he’s waiting in the park

    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark

    And watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre

    Every little thing the reflex does

    Leaves you answered with a question mark

    I’m on a ride and I want to get off

    But they won’t slow down the roundabout

    I sold the Renoir and the TV set

    Don’t want to be around when this gets out

    CHORUS

    Oh the reflex what a game he’s hiding all the cards

    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark

    And watching over lucky clover isn’t that bizarre

    Every little thing the reflex does

    Leaves you answered with a question mark
