Unsuck it – Turn jargon to speech

“Ninja,” “Guru,” “Team Player,” “Personal Brand” — if this litany of terms gets your skin crawling, you might want to check out this novelty app: Unsuck It.Brought to you by Mule Design, Unsuck It basically does just that: When you enter a term like, say, “Ninja” into the search bar, the app translates it into normal person language.You then have the option of sharing it on Twitter, or “e-mailing the douchebag who used it” — said e-mail contains the subject line, “Hey, douchebag! Stop torturing the English language!” and a link to the term and translation in the body. The site also features the option “I’m Feeling Douchey,” which unearths a random term, and a “Browse” tab by which you can sift through other gems.All right, ye of the office-bound variety — future fighters of the weekend wars — tell us in the comments, what’s the worst jargon-y term you’ve heard (or used…) all day?
