Will Ford Stop Making Cars for Buffs - Science

For years, Ford has been making the biggest pigdog vehicles possible as they cleverly marketed cars which no Euros would buy because often the streets are too narrow due to ancient design and do invoke the Law of Evolutionary Potential on that since it applies to just about anything, even building roads.

The giant pigdog vehicles have the most merit for people too fat for any useful purpose beyond biofuel (i.e. BUFFs) and America has obliged spectacularly to become the second fattest people in the world after Mexico.  For some that comes for medical reasons but damn few of them.  Most are just fat, lazy, and shiftless ... but ... they can pull together eighty grand for a BUFFmobile.  It's the beauty of America, my brothers and sisters.  Ford's changes at the top aimed at faster decision-making

Well, there's the typically-vacuous, bald-headed white guy CEO bullshit.

Further confirmation:

Jim Hackett: I can't speak to that because I wasn't in the room.

In English, we don't speak TO something, we speak ABOUT something, you simple bald-headed, over-heated minor brain cabbage.  He couldn't get into the room because, you know corporate, there was an elephant in the room and he couldn't see the whole thing.  That's apparently a concern when you're unaware of the bilateral symmetry of elephants.

I'm tellin' you, mates, corpospeak is just as destructive to the language as texting.

Let's close with some of the most classic empty-headed corpospeak you may ever hear.

Jim Hackett: I think at the highest level, the compass for being great is human centered. If you look back at my history transforming Steelcase design thinking, it's understanding that you can make things even better. I believe we can conquer all of those. Some of the things in Consumer Reports were the interface (between drivers and the cars). Technology needs to be received in a way that people aren't bothered by it but are delighted by it.

Dear Lord, don't it make you quiver to hear rubbish like that?

In plain English, Ford won't change anything except the advertising.
