  Today, I was chosen by my coworkers to explain to my elderly boss that ''tossing the salad'' isn't another expression for saying ''brainstorming''. She didn't believe me. Guess we will all keep ''tossing the salad'' for new ideas each afternoon. FML

Why not just toss the salad with her? Can't be that bad. I actually like that expression, I was getting tired of "brainstorming", anyway. Being from Denmark, "brainstorm" is one of those words we insisted on "borrowing" because we were too lazy to find an appropriate Danish translation, or because some business-person figured the English term sounded cooler or whatever, so the English term has become a part of the Danish language. It's a shame that "tossing the salad" doesn't translate that well into Danish, or I might just have found us the new, Danish term for brainstorming. :-)
