|You gotta speak the lingo

In my job, I occasionally have to work with consultants. Sometimes this is a good thing, and sometimes it's a bad thing.|
One thing that's always a good thing is consultant speak. Where else but from a consultant could you hear words like "ideate"?
The consultants I'm working with now try not to use consultant speak, but sometimes they slip. This past week, after a meeting, this exchange took place:
Me: Did you honestly just say, "Open the kimono of shaking out the plumbing"?
Consultant: Yes, but it sounded a whole lot better in my head.
