Thanks to simbosan for the idea

I used to have a verbally disabled boss who was always coming out with his own made-up ‘management speak’. Some that spring to mind;

“He lies like a hairy egg.”

“That’s the problem with these courses, they teach you stuff you don’t know.”

“He’s digging himself a hole and finding mole hills to add to his other mole hills.”

“I smell a Heron!”

“You’ve got two choices and one of them is to leave, so It’s one choice really (after a short pause he frowns and turns to his assistant) Is one choice a choice?”

He was fat, bald, moustached, sweary, chain smoking, afternoon drunk, idiot. I’d love to work for him again.

...I personally will be using the phrase 'He lies like a hairy egg' in every possible conversation from now on.

I like the idea
of making up your own bollocks that only you know the meaning, if indeed there is a meaning

The beauty of it was
he wasn’t doing it on purpose, he was just not very good at thinking or speaking.

Sounds like he's great at speaking
just not in the conventional/pedant way!
