IOC (International Obfuscation Committee)

Filed under: — Greg @ 7:12 pm

n.

  1. The IOC is the worldwide organization that determines the simplest, most straightforward way to market products and present information, and then enforces the exact opposite. Past IOC mandates have included the following:
    • Number of hotdogs in a package shall not equal number of hotdog buns in a package.
    • Pillows of different sizes must be presented without a size distinction where possible; under no circumstances shall a size indication be attached or imprinted onto the pillow itself.
    • New television shows with high ratings shall have their timeslots changed a minimum of twice per month during the first 3 months of the season.
    • Daylight Savings Time.
    • Gasoline gallon prices shall not have an integral number of cents.
    • Computer error dialogs are required to give as little information as possible. Error messages should cause the user to believe they are at fault, and possibly facing legal action (e.g. “Illegal operation in excel.exe”).
