What is a Boondoggle?


What the heck is a boondoggle?  We have a great pub around here called boondoggles, but I never knew what it meant.  It was a jeopardy question yesterday.  No one got it. 

So... the dictionary says it is a worthless or wasteful project undertaken for political or personal gain such as a government project funded by taxpayers.  Additionally, it is work of little or no value.  As a teacher, that's what I would call busy work.  We usually left busy work for kids to do during our absence.  Actually, when we were absent for professional development... that was definitely a boondoggle!  What is a boondoggle you have experienced?

And now for some funnies...

Have a great week, and don't forget to visit Happy Tuesday and Random Tuesday Thoughts!


  1. Love all the funnies and that last one made me spew my coffee. Goodness.

    I knew what a boondoggle was because I worked for our county government. Government is full to the brim with boondoggles.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  2. Heeheehee! Bloody Mary, indeed. Thanks for the laughs.

    Almost all of Louisiana is a boondoggle. It's sad to watch.
