"Deferred Success"

That's on something called the Global Language Monitor's top ten list of politically correct phrases. It's pc-speak for "failure".

They don't list my very favourite. During the latest outbreak of looting which made the news a couple of months ago, a certain forum for pipers took to referring to the folks engaging in such unauthorized commerce as "undocumented shoppers".

Wonderful.
