So all teachers must now say Thought Shower.
I love UK.
Teacher: WHAT!?!? BLASPHEMER!! *uppercuts*
with reference political correctness that one deems unnecessary.
2. UK Replacement for the term brainstorm which was banned from schools on the grounds that it might offend epileptics despite its positive connotation.
1. After a great deal of thought showering, the term "epic fail" has been branded profane since it offends those who are prone to failing or innately fail at life.
The word 'brainstorm' was not banned from UK schools you idiots. It was deemed offensive to epileptics by ONE local council who opted not to use it in their public discourse in favour of the term 'thought shower'. This was ridiculed by everyone everywhere, including epileptics, for being so stupid that even the Flat Earth Society and the Super Sweet 16 fanclub pointed and laughed.
The phrase, while rarely used, is still highly reactive to the point where it reduces the IQ of both speaker and listener whenever used.
Normal person: Damn, I think I just got dumber.
