This is what I feel like at committee meetings.
It's plain as paddy's pig what they're going to talk about and accomplish. Nothing.
But they have to slice the pig into bacon, and divide it into ham, and and pickle the hide before they can get down to the facts. And before they get down to it, everyone's forgotten what they were talking about.
Some that were on the ham committee think it's the ham that's the most important part of the pig. And those on the bacon committee swear that if it wasn't for bacon, then it wouldn't be any part of pig at all.
And so they all go away without making any decisions.
