Ok, there *is* a business buzzword that's been bugging me lately, and it isn't on the above list.

When two things are related, stop saying that they "dovetail" into each other.
There are no doves here. Sometimes two things are simply related.

Dovetail makes sense to me.  It comes from the woodworking world and is used with a type joint or joining that looks somewhat like the tail feathers of doves.

"Full stack engineer."

My plan is to construct the tallest stack of pancakes ever. It'll be YUGE.

A full pancake stack engineer actually sounds like a pretty cool job.  I'm imagining someone in the kitchen at IHOP measuring the pancakes with calipers.

Hmm. And they'd need to have fluid mechanics to be able to make certain all the pancakes get the right amount of syrup.

"Who knew?!"

Example:  "Wow, there is an annual Spring Fling held at the community college to get people ready for the warm weather running season!  Who knew?"

... I don't know, all the people that planned it and attend it every year?

They are still using this phrase far too often.
