'Brainstorming' banned by council for fear of offending epileptics
From now on its 'thought showers' rather 'brainstorming' at least in Tunbridge Wells. Showers hmm.. Get out the umbrella I'd hate to get caught in a shower of someone else's shady unwanted throw away thoughts.
Brainstorming has undoubtedly generated some bolts of brilliance and flashes of inspiration over the years.
But in genteel Tunbridge Wells, the council decided it might lead to the traditionally Disgusted residents of the town becoming Offended as well.
So now the expression brainstorming has been banned. And in future, meetings to generate new ideas will be referred to as 'thought showers'.
