Brainstorming? No, thought showers!

Some things are so absurd, words fail.

Council bans brainstorming - Telegraph
A council has banned the term "brainstorming" and replaced it with "thought showers".

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in Kent was accused of taking political correctness to extremes after instructing staff to make the change.

The move came as council chiefs feared the word brainstorming might offend mentally ill people and those with epilepsy.
