Crap, nonsense, and vapidity

Miss Alli riffs on PowerPoint:

Oh, and then, we get my least favorite thing in the world. The scourge of the universe. The great agony of mankind. It’s…PowerPoint. NOOOOOOO! The presentation starts with a screen saying, “Objective: To inspire motivation and expand consumer awareness through a targeted advertising campaign.” Okay, first of all, there is no such damn thing as “inspiring motivation.” At all. Second, isn’t that the objective of every advertising initiative? See, it says absolutely nothing, and yet it says it in big letters on the wall. That is the curse of PowerPoint, people — the notion that crap, nonsense, and vapidity sound a lot better if each one of them is a bullet point.
