Passionate about just about everything

This bandying about of passion has been bothering me for a while. Thankfully the excellent David Mitchell has nailed this heinous phenomenon. Ridicule is the least the perpetrators deserve. They actually deserve far, far worse. Or perhaps they're already living in a hell of undifferentiated emotion, mere husks of human beings? Making love to everyday objects in preference to their so-called loved ones, cherishing bland professional tasks rather than their nearest and dearest? Damn them, I say. Polluters.

haha its funny 'cos it's true...last ad agency I worked at, I was (amongst other things) the main proofreader, and I used to refuse to let the PR department use the phrase 'At Bloggs & co, we're passionate about...'

If I hadn't stopped them, literally every single thing we sent out would have started with that phrase.

Are Undertakers allowed to be passionate about what they do?

"Solutions" is another word: "Sofa Solutions", "Latex Solutions", "Vinyl Solutions"....

Also "experience", as in "Our staff here at the Frolic 'n Fun Hotel are all passionate about your vacation experience."

Also "We're more than just...." (tax consultants/sofa sellers etc).
