Further clarification

Someone at my place of employment recently used the word "synergies". I am appalled and saddened by this and, were it the case that I felt any degree of responsibility for this, I would apologise.
The definition of 'synergy' is thus:
The idea, propagated by those with no familiarity with the science of addition or training in the use of a calculator, that two plus two equals five.

Vicus, sweetheart. Breathe in, breathe out. You'll be fine.

People in offices use that word all the time and you'll survive it.

Although I'm interested to find out how you managed to come up with five. I got 4.7968

Pam you rounded to the lowest wrong answer.

Vicus - Synergy, properly explaained, is the effect of the kinetic energy from two simultaneous right hooks or by two Scotsmen helpfully trying to make one's testicles achieve the down-and-locked-for-landing position.

But can they spell? I just got a text message saying I am "gorgous" and the closing was, "Pease out".

synergy-Mel Gibson's ego, car and a bottle of Cuervo Gold.

I've worked with the California Highway Patrol. Gibson's lucky he's still alive.

Dyna girl-gorgous? What were you doing last night?
