Gotta have a meeting

Chad Orzel, Dean Dad and Female Science Professor are having a contest to name the worst kind of meeting. Somehow they missed

Groundhog Day
The same meeting, every meeting, until you retire, then you dream about it until you die. Sartre was a smart cookie. Hell is your colleagues. There is no exit.

UPDATE: Steve Bloom wins the thread

S/he who dies having convened the most meetings wins.

Hey Rabett, you spelt Sartre correctly, well done.
Now that the ice is returning, I guess the world doesn't end in 2009. Better luck next summer.
Whats the bet for a 14 m sq km area as winter peak.

Yes, I know, some anon will say its thinner than a faith warmers integrity.

Eli only feeds the birds. Sometimes he feeds the trolls to the birds.

Sartre, oui, Orzel no!

Ah, but s/he who dies having convened the most meetings wins.

Since subtlety doesn't work: it's "Orzel" not "Orzal."

Eli doesn't do subtle. Goes right between his ears.
