Word for the day - "clusterfuck"

Wired's article How Yahoo Blew It contains this wonderful extract:
Decisions big and small, from trying out new features to agreeing on budgets, had to be cleared by committee after committee in Sunnyvale. "It was a clusterfuck," one of the participants says.

For some reason, the word really appeals. Not that I've got anything against Yahoo -- far from it. The provide some very cool tools, such as Pipes, which is an interactive feed aggregator and manipulator. David Shorthouse brought this to my attention. As he points out, its highly relevant to our conversation on iSpecies.
