Friday Wisdom – Committee

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here, but I am the Webmaster for the American Marquetry Society. Last night was our regular quarterly board meeting and I got assigned to the contest committee so naturally, here’s what I know about committes:

All meetings have to natural time limits: your laptop’s battery charge and the size of your bladder.

What do you get when you cross a cat with a wild boar? They pull your grant and you get a call from the ethics committee.

A camel is a horse designed by a committee.

Every person assigned to the committee was named William or as we like to call them, the billboard.

You can learn a lot during a meeting. I learned you can bend a paperclip in to an “S” with just one bend.

Committee: A group who individual can do nothing but as a group can determine that nothing can be done.

How many committee members does it take to change a lightbulb? This is a topic continued from last month, but because there are still outstanding action items will be continued next month.

We can to disband the horse committee – too many naysayers …

We tried have a horse on the committee, but he just kept voting “Neigh.”

There’s a new political action committee to project the rights of wine drinkers. They call themselves The Bacchus Caucus.

The Senate Intelligence Committee – I hate when I put the punch line in the title …

    Got a real chuckle out of the first one, thinking of all the online meetings my son is involved in.
