Ditto for "Win-Win Situation"

This sentence, from an article in the fall Suffolk University alumni magazine, made me cringe: "What happens to risk taking and creative, outside-the-box thinking?"

Seriously, could we all please agree to stop using the phrase "outside of the box" to describe creative thinking? "Outside of the box" is so inside the box that it is choking on a mouthful of packing peanuts.
