Developer Euphemisms

Today driving into work, I was mulling over some of the business euphemisms that have been popular in places I've worked. I'm not sure which (if any) were specific to my companies or not, but they always amused me. What other unique jargon has crept into your workplace conversations?

"The rats are wearing life preservers"
It's time to update your resume, because this project and/or company is a sinking ship

"Brown Bunny Project"
Ever heard the phrase "pull a rabbit out of your a**"? This is a project that resulted from such an uncomfortable effort.

"Chubelocity"
Similar to project velocity measurements, this is an indicator of how much weight the team has gained working late nights and eating snacks while on a project.
