I’m sure that it is safe to assume that we all have had the opportunity to serve on at least one committee in our lives and were able to witness firsthand the incredible groups dynamics involved in committee work.  Well, here are some fresh takes on the definition of a committee courtesy of The Cynic’s Dictionary by Aubrey Dillon-Malone.  Enjoy!  (The last one is actually my favorite.)

“A cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled.”  (John A. Lincoln)

“An animal with four back legs.”  (John Le Carré)

“A group of people for keep minutes and waste hours.”  (Milton Berle)

“A small group of the unqualified, appointed by the unthinking, to undertake the utterly unnecessary.”  (Fibber Magee)
