As you can see, the choice of the word 'boondoggle' was not mine, nor
that of the original poster.
As to the meaning of the word 'boondoggle' here's Merriam Webster's
boon•dog•gle \"bun-'da-gel, -'do-\ noun [coined by Robert H. Link
†1957 Am. scoutmaster] (1929)
1 : a braided cord worn by Boy Scouts as a neckerchief slide,
hatband, or ornament
2 : a wasteful or impractical project or activity often
boon•dog•gler \-g(e-)ler\ noun
Irrational beliefs ultimately lead to irrational acts.
