I’ve been hearing this ad on NPR lately… sorry, I mean “underwriters credit” or whatever they call them. It’s for some software they claim will “help everyone in the enterprise work with and understand data”. And while I understand what they actually mean, I like to imagine they’re actually saying they will help everyone in the Starship Enterprise work with and understand Data, the android. That’s what they get for using the buzzword “enterprise” in place of “business” or “company”, I say.
Do you ever do that? Are there any phrases you choose to interpret in a different way from the intended meaning, just because you find it funny?
