Goes something like this:

You say "interface, paradigm shift, dialogue, consumerization, productivitism, strategic change value system strawcase analysis..." and you get squawked.

More highly trained (larger) birds emit a loud proclamation like:

"That's bullsh*t!"

or

"Siddown, Bozo!"

If the bird ever shuts up, or is found lying face down on the bottom of its cage, you should all leave the meeting immediately.

I Particularly like the fact that this page randomises the terms on refresh [gnomethang, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       I like the idea, but can canaries be taught to speak? Wouldn't it have to be a parrot or a macaw?

       Good point. I'll add it.

       PETA would not approve.   

       Therefore I approve.

       Is this like the canary in the bathroom? +

       You have a canary in your bathroom? Poor thing!

       That way I know whether it is safe to go in there. It's either him or me. (Rebunned) ++

       I think Lyre birds would be more suitable around the average board room table.

       Places I have been would need the canary six pack for meetings.

       Oh I thought that was the link. :)

       Sounds like he could serve as a canary replacement. That would certainly stop a sheister mid-buzz.
