Could this be the worst C.R.A.P. ever?

It’s one thing to run wellness tips in an employee publication. It’s another thing to run tips from a fat gasbag of a TV host who needs to lose more than a few pounds himself.

Here at C.R.A.P. Central (Corporate Rhetoric Awards Program), we search far and wide to find the worst examples of corporate communication out there. And usually, we find at least two pieces of organizational feces to talk about.

This time, however, we are focusing on just one. Why? Because it is so bad that we need to stay laser focused on it. It’s so insidious, we’re petrified other editors might see it and be tempted to do something similar to fill space in their own publications.

And we can’t have that. So here we go, with what might be the worst C.R.A.P. ever.

(I can call him fat, because I’m fat, too. It’s like how black rappers are able to use the “n” word.)
