Did anyone ever mention that there's no "U" in "team" either?

/So GTFO I guess?

Just remember that it's a synonym for 'hoaching'.

another way to spell it is teme

from the true source urban dictionary:

teme
A Japanese word that is essentially a rude way of saying "YOU!" as in "You bastard!"
Usually it is simply translated to bastard or some other nasty name.
Dude 1: I slept with your girlfriend.
Dude 2: Teme!!!

Over 60 years ago, one summer I briefly manned the phone at my Dad's store while Dad made deliveries. (He was having trouble hiring a secretary.)  I was young enough when alone in the store to get the fidgets and explored the backrooms where there was stray inventory. I discovered a box marked Teem. If you don't know, Teem was a 7-Up competitor, a lemon/lime soft drink. Inside the box was a large clear bottle and my adolescent mind said, "fountain syrup." Here was a large jar of fountain syrup! To someone with an undeveloped brain, it was like finding gold. "I wonder what fountain syrup smells like." So I unscrewed the bottle cap and took a deep sniff. It was NOT fountain syrup and I almost lost the top third of my skull. It was industrial strength ammonia, and it was the last stray bit of inventory that I checked out.

..but there is an "M" and an "E"
 
2022-07-03 11:34:40 AM  
That is just so strange.
 
2022-07-03 11:36:35 AM  
There used to be a lemon-lime soda, a 7-Up clone called 'Teem'.

But there is one in win and two in championship.  Also there's a lie in belief.
 
2022-07-03 12:23:19 PM  
There may not be an "I" in team, but there's almost enough letters to spell "eat me".
 
2022-07-03 12:49:33 PM  
When the asshole brain washers at the company I worked at came in with their "no I in TEAM" bullshiat we started a whispering campaign.

"Yeah, but there's still two U's in F*CK YO*!"

Still love that one...

Fark, I am disappoint. No one else posted The Tuna of Opportunity?

There's a "sing" in single
A "cel" in celebrity
There's a "rage" in marriage
There's a "grave" in gravy
There's a "dump" in dumpling
A "liver" in delivery
There's a "pay" in every patriot
And a "spit" in hospitality

But there's a tuna, there's a tuna
There's a tuna in every opportunity
Chunk, light, or albacore
Guess who's knocking at your door
It's the tuna of opportunity

If you take the two a's out of "aardvark"
If you take the two l's out of "llama"
If you take the two o's out of "ooze"
Put them all together, they spell "aalloo"

But there's a tuna, there's a tuna
There's a tuna in every opportunity

Chunk, light, or albacore
Guess who's knocking at your door
It's the tuna of opportunity

There's a "die" in every diet
There's a "gas" in gastrointestinal tract
There's a "men" in mental illness
And "overre" in overreact

Usually Delmonte knocks in the morning
Sometimes Bumble Bee in the afternoon
But once in a while Chicken of the Sea after midnight
But it's always Starkist before the dawn
Yes, there's a tuna, there's a tuna
There's a tuna in every opportunity

Chunk, light, or albacore
Guess who's knocking at your door
It's the tuna of opportunity

Oh, water, oil, or Ahe
You should give it a try-hee

The tuna of opportunity!

Glad that was covered, we must be old

There's ni 'I' in 'teem', but there is a ME

E.S.Q.: There's ni 'I' in 'teem', but there is a ME


Look!  It's one of the Knights Who Say 'NI'!

Not amused, Subby.

"There's no I in Team," but there is 'meat' which is how most managers who say that line view their workers.

Backwards it's meet.

As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about.
