Enough, already! The ‘Shit People Say’ meme comes to the venture capital business

Venture Capitalist David Hornik

Is the whole “Shit People Say” meme getting out of control? We’ve already witnessed the “Shit Seattle People Say When it Snows” fascination following the snowstorm a few weeks ago, and the “Shit Silicon Valley Says” video that went viral with 1.5 million views on YouTube.

Now, here’s the latest. David Hornik, a venture capitalist at August Capital, an investor in Seattle area companies such as INRIX, Livemocha and Zulily, puts together a new video with some of the absurd statements that venture capitalists make.

Am I the only one whose skin crawled after watching this video? Among the lines:

“I met that guy at DEMO day.”

“Have you ever climbed Mt. Kilmanjaro?”

“That is literally the worst Four Seasons in the world.”

“What, you only have seven million users?”
