Classic Ways to Criticize Your Boss

Roger Casement a British consul official to the Congo used the following terms to criticize his superiors in 1903.

  • “a gang of stupidities”
  • “an abject piffler”
  • “wretched set of incompetent noodles”

I’m very curious about what exactly would make a noodle incompetent.
