hilarious... CIP (Ch* in progress)


quote (but read the whole thing on the original page, it's great stuff!):

Mumbai. Mr. Murali Chetankar, 29, an MBA from a top tier management institute of India has created a stir around the world. He has invented an all encompassing TLA (Three Letter Acronym or Three Letter Abbreviation), which can be used to describe the work that management graduates do. The acronym – CIP (Ch*tiyaps in Progress) is now universally accepted and understood. Oxford is planning to debate, discuss and include this TLA in its dictionary in the next revision. This is probably the first engineered Indian word to be included in the Oxford Dictionary.

The story of how this was invented is fascinating. Murali was perturbed by the frequent probing of his engineering college classmates as to what work he was doing post his MBA.  Frustrated by the repeated questions like 'Wazzup' and 'Whats happening', Murali decided to take the road less travelled and discover a word to explain what work he did. After much deliberation he realized that all he did for the last 3-4 years was nothing but Ch*tiyaps. In a fit of rage he updated his GMail status to "CIP – Ch*tiyaps in Progress".
