"A camel is a horse designed by committee." Attributed to Sir Alec Issigonis (July 1958 Vogue Magazine).
Design by committee is a derogatory term referring to the poor results of collaboration. Wikipedia goes so far as to characterize it as a style of needless complexity, internal inconsistency, logical flaws, banality, and the lack of a unifying vision.
O ye who know not of which you speak. The Texas Rangers are on my side!
