Cheat Every One (Chief Executive Officer or CEO nickname)

"CEO” stands for “Chief Executive Officer.” Some critics believe that CEOs are overpaid, with the critics defining “CEO” as “Cheat/Cheating/Cheats Every One.” A board game titled “CEO—Cheat Every One” is from 2005.

Another nickname for “CEO” is “Chief Everything Officer.”


(Oxford English Dictionary)

1972 Harvard Business Rev. Mar.–Apr. 62/2 A technician in his early forties who joined the company three years ago as president but not *CEO.

“C.E.O." stands for CHEAT EVERY ONE
They lurk in shadows and worship moonless nights. They enjoy biting into the soft spots on the top of babies heads. They seek to suck the marrow from your very soul.

Who are these monsters?

C.E.O.s of companies. All companies. Every company.

Apparently, Bob Harper doesn’t know what CEO stands for. It stands for Cheat Every One, Bob. That’s what CEO’s do today and if that 44 thousand dollar raise doesn’t show that Wrong Winger is good at that, then you just aren’t paying attention, Bob.

Damned shame. Seems that in the US CEO should stand for Certifiably Extremely Overpaid or Cheat Every One, since our CEOs earn more than in any other country even if the company is in the red and tanking.
