Just study a few of random Corporate B.S. Generator[^] sentences and casually mention them half-meeting.

Example:
Me: "So in conclusion I say we should rewrite the application to use NoSQL." (mentioning NoSQL gives you bonus points and stresses out other devs)
Someone else: "Yes Sander, I know what you mean, but are you sure this will... quickly supply quality catalysts for change?" (nice comeback!)
Me: "..." (can't recover, I've been defeated because this guy is so brilliant)

Explanation:
As you see "someone else" took charge of the conversation by over-bullshitting me.
NoSQL was a nice touch, but perhaps a little too specific, keep it general and vague for maximum results.

Success guaranteed Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
