The best ideas are never implemented

I got an assignment, be on a call to brainstorm ideas for the name of a new performance-motivating contest. All departments are eligible. It should have a rock-n-roll theme, since the grand prize will include tickets to some premiere rock concert (our new CEO loves the rock-n-roll). It's all about team work and pulling together (tough times at the company; must stick together, must stay motivated).

I threw out a number of possibilities, one of which was finally chosen. It was an obvious one, and somebody else said they were going to suggest it too. It was even almost exactly the same name as a company-wide contest from years ago, before I started.

But my best idea was ignored:

"Smells Like Team Spirit"
