    Apparently some posters don't seem to grasp the concept. Lately it's been principally @T.R and @The Ghost of Crazy Horse.

    Not sure what the solution is without causing the mods even more tsoris than usual, other than a stern lecture somewhere.

    Yes, we've all butted in to meme threads with just text occasionally, but now that we actually have two meme threads in the RR, I guess a sub-explanation of what "political" means is required for at least one poster.

    Mods while you're at it could you explain the meaning of "herding cats" to me, I have been posting in the Red Room for going on two decades but the concept remains beyond my grasp

    Also, someone needs to explain the definition of "political" to @Ten Lubak.

    And nailing jello to a tree. I've raised two teenagers, but have never tried nailing jello to a tree. Can someone explain that concept to me?

    Both metaphors have to do with trying to manage the unmanageable - whether it's teenagers or a corporate team meeting.
